Abstract:

"The late Philip K Dick was a master of science fiction, winner of such prestigious prizes as the Hugo Award and the John W. Campbell Award. His startlingly original imagination has entertained readers for over thirty years and has influenced a generation of science fiction and fantasy writers. I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon marks an event in science fiction publishing, bringing together ten previously uncollected stories and a major essay that has never before been published. Here are fantastic voyages into inner space and outer space, dazzling explorations of alien minds, alien cultures, and alien invasions. From a space-ship that soars beyond the imagination to a space traveler who cheats death, from a shoe with a mind of its own to a gumball machine that is in reality a doomsday machine, these are remarkable stories of magic, mystery and wonder. I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon is Philip K. Dick at his most marvelous and inventive. It draws us into dreamlike realities that defy experience and excite the spirit of adventure in us all."--Jacket.
