Is it better to regret what you have done than to regret what you didn't do, if it cannot be undone?
Reviewed in the United States on April 20, 2015
In Clans of the Alphane Moon PKD presages breast implants with startling accuracy in a future much more like our own than many of his novels. Of course we have done better in his 1990's than we have ever hoped, not only tackling intergalactic travel but also winning a war against aliens, something we have trouble even imagining in our scifi nowadays. Despite the hard fighting and decisive actions needed to win a war, PKD sticks to his model, and my personal preference, of telling the story through a myriad of characters who's thoughts and feelings weigh more than their actions. The individuals who most closely fit the heroic description are quite sinister individuals, from scheming ex-wives, Terran Soldiers, CIA simulacra, and Manic Schizophrenics.
I dont want to give it away, it is a tasty mix of Freudian philosophy, Darwinian evolution and Poly Sci, and is a fun and fast read. Paid by title and not by page, PKD makes quick work of this world, and leaves you wanting more. Luckily he wrote plenty.
