RADIO FREE ALBEMUTH. Philip Dick, indred.


New York: Arbor House, [1985]. Octavo, boards. First edition. Posthumously published draft of VALIS, which ultimately mutated into something quite different. The whole novel "is set in an alternate universe in which a certain Ferris F. Fremont, rather than Richard Nixon, was elected president in 1978. The two are not dissimilar, but Nixon's paranoia about domestic 'enemies' becomes Fremont's all-out campaign against a supposed conspiracy known as Aramchek." - Mackey, Philip K. Dick, p. 115. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, pp. 427-28. Broderick and Di Filippo, Science Fiction: The 101 Best Novels, 1985-2010 #3. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. (3632).
