about

When Dr. Jim Parsons wakes up from a car accident, he finds himself in a future populated almost entirely by the young. But to keep the world run by the young, death is fetishized, and those who survive to old age are put down. In such a world, Parsons-with his innate desire to save lives-is a criminal and outcast. But for one revolutionary group, he may be just the savior they need to heal and revive their cryogenically frozen leader.&nbspAnd when he and the group journey to 1500s California, what they find causes them to question what they know about history and the underpinnings of their society. With the jarring immediacy of a car crash, Philip K. Dick throws both the reader and protagonist of Dr. Futurity into a bizarre future where healing is a crime and youth rules.
PHILIP K. DICK (1928-1982) wrote 121 short stories and 45 novels and is considered one of the most visionary authors of the twentieth century. Eleven works have been adapted to film, including Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? ), Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good if you like time travel paradox stories but... ...this was a strange little novel. I don't know if it has stood the test of time too well, even though it would have been pretty progressive for it's time. Some of his writing -- particularly about women -- wouldn't stand up to modern views at all.
