Minority Report And Other Stories, TheDownloadable Audiobook - 2003
Viewed by many as the greatest science fiction writer on any planet, Philip K. Dick has written some of the most intriguing, original and thought-provoking fiction of our time. This collection includes stories that will make you lough, cringe...and stop and think. The Minority Report: a special unit that employs those with the power of precognition to prevent crimes proves itself less than reliable... We Can Remember It For You Wholesale: an everyguy's yearning for more exciting "memories" places him in a danger he never could have imagined (basis of the feature film Total Recall)... Paycheck: a mechanic who has no memory of the previous two years of his life finds that a bag of seemingly worthless and unrelated objects can actually unlock the secret of his recent past -- and insure that he has a future... Second Variety: the UN's technological advances to win a global war veer out of control, threatening to destroy all of humankind (basis of the movie Screamers)... The Eyes Have It: a whimsical, laugh-out-loud play on the words of the title.
