    Black cloth with red lettering on the spine and front cover. The price-clipped dust jacket with some light wear and rubbing.

    This "alternative history" novel by science-fiction ace Philip K. Dick, suggesting what may have happened if the Axis powers had won World War II, won the Hugo Award in 1962. Accustomed to writing quickly as a way of supporting himself and his wife, Dick had the luxury of writing several drafts for this novel, resulting in one of his best and most brilliant literary efforts.
