In Radio Free Albemuth, his last novel, Philip K. Dick morphed and recombined themes that had informed his fiction from A Scanner Darkly to VALIS and produced a wild, impassioned work that reads like a visionary alternate history of the United States. Agonizingly suspenseful, darkly hilarious, and filled with enough conspiracy theories to thrill the most hardened paranoid, Radio Free Albemuth is proof of Dick's stature as our century's greatest science fiction writer.

A difficult and somewhat tedious reading experience, but one hell of strange story. In "Radio Free Albemuth" Philip K. Dick mixes social and political paranoia, religious mania, alien invasion, and mind control all amidst the typical Philip K. Dick questioning of identity.
