Read full description of the books Os Três Estigmas de Palmer Eldritch:Num futuro não tão distante, quando o exílio compulsório de um planeta Terra excessivamente quente significa instalar-se miseravelmente em colônias marcianas, a única coisa que faz a vida dos colonizadores suportável são as drogas. Única em sua finalidade, a Can-D "traduz" aqueles que a consomem para uma outra realidade.
No entanto, o surgimento de um concorrente abre uma disputa por esse mercado. Chamada Chew-Z, a nova substância é comercializada sob o slogan "Deus promete a vida eterna; nós cumprimos a promessa". Mas a questão é: Que tipo de eternidade ela oferece? E quem - ou o que - será seu portador?

In 1952, he began writing professionally and proceeded to write numerous novels and short-story collections. He won the Hugo Award for the best novel in 1962 for The Man in the High Castle and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best novel of the year in 1974 for Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said.

In addition to 44 published novels, Dick wrote approximately 121 short stories, most of which appeared in science fiction magazines during his lifetime.
