    2. The first time I read this was years ago and I remember thinking how wild it was to have so many of PKD s normal theme soup all in one place You know simulacra, psi, suicide, drugs, intrigue, murder, aliens, altered realities, dark fate for humanity, etc but I didn t remember this novel being so funny.I mean, aside from the fact it s not quite as good as the Player of Games by Iain M Banks, the two are quite similar I can see Banks sitting down to write and think, how could I improve upon this n [...]

    4. Philip K Dick s 10th novel, The Game Players of Titan, was originally released in 1963 as an Ace paperback F 251, for all the collectors out there , with a cover price of a whopping 40 cents His follow up to the Hugo Award winning The Man in the High Castle, it was one of six novels that Phil saw published from 1962 64, during one of the most sustained and brilliant creative bursts in sci fi history Like so many of the author s works, the action in Game Players transpires on a futuristic Earth a [...]

    5. Anyhow, Pete Garden, you were psychotic and drunk and on amphetamines and hallucinating, but basically you perceived the reality that confronts us PKD must have dreamed that any one of his five wives or several girlfriends would one day sit across the breakfast table and speak those words to him I don t know that he was ever psychotic, that term was tossed around differently in the 1960 s than it would be today But drunk and on amphetamines, Yes Hallucinating During the time he was writing this [...]

    6. Not exactly what I expected with a title like that or a blurb like the one found on this 1973 printing but what I didn t expect and don t ask me why I ignored it was an allegory of Cold War America told through an interstellar cold war with aliens from Titan.So Dick wanted to be thought of as a literary writer not a pulpy sci fi author, and I say fair enough as my experiences of his work so far point to the obvious conclusion that this drug fuelled writer had a lot to say than most sci fi write [...]

    7. Reading Philip K Dick, for me, is like hanging out with a super odd friend and just marveling at how very odd he is This is the ninth book I have read by him I am reading his books roughly in the order he published them though I have skipped a few He was very prolific at the beginning and it seems I can only take so much of his clunky prose However, he was so prescient, perhaps the most of all speculative writers ever and that is why he fascinates me and many other readers In this one, Earth is [...]

    9. Personalmente non il Dick che preferisco Questo autore mi da l impressione che ne scriva uno buono e tre frettolosamente perch doveva saldare i conti alla fine del mese un po come fa Woody Allen con i film Un onesto libro di fantascienza, un onesto libro di Dick I temi cardine dell autore sono sempre l in bella posta droga, percezione della realt , complottismo a gog e, questa volta, anche una bella puntata nel mondo delle relazioni di coppia che non fu tanto tenero con il nostro E inutile finan [...]

    10. I ve only read one other novel by Philip K Dick, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, but based on these two novels, I m not really that interested in his writing The Game Players of Titan is strong on plot but weak on characterization The book has too many characters, all of whom are pretty one dimensional, and it switches perspectives from character to character too often The book does present several intriguing ideas, like the post apocalyptic world with a tiny population, the game of Bluff [...]

    11. It s interesting how comprehensive a novel Gameplayers is it comprises so many of the bizarre, unique elements characteristic of the PKD classics Gameplayers is not a particularly amazing novel or a favorite, but it is bizarre and exceptionally memorable and certainly a quick, worthwhile read.

    15. This is vintage PKD at his most insane What s interesting about this book is that it starts off rather boring I felt myself wanting to give up on it for the first fifty pages or so Then a murder happens and it gets interesting Not too long after it gets interesting, it gets quite crazy So crazy that, in many spots, I had no idea what was going on But, it s PKD, so, a good reader knows to stick with it and Phil will bring everything together at the conclusion of the book And he did I d give this [...]

    16. Unsurprisingly bizarre Perhaps this is fundamental reality, beneath the conscious layer of the psyche maybe this is the way we really are They re showing us this, killing us with the truth about ourselves Their telepathic faculty and their ability to mold and reform minds, to infuse them she retreated from the thought.

After the Terrans destroyed and sterilized most of their own population, they went on to lose a war against the jelly like cytoplasmic Titanians In the resulting peace concordant, The Game was introduced, a way that chance and luck could be utilized in order to distribute property and to try and repopulate the Earth through random couplings Pete Garden was a Bindman a property owner of various territories on the west coast but through eighteen marriages over a hundred odd years had yet to experi [...]

    19. A very enjoyable story The over all idea was what I had expected Solar Lottery to be It seemed to me, that the set up didn t completely fit how and to where the story went and it bogged a little in the middle but the story really picked up during the last third and end part Overall, it was good fun pulp written only the way PKD could.

    20. Mind bending and awesome With everything you expect from a Philip K Dick novel A setting and plot which shifts and dissolves, characters with shifting memories and powers of perception, and basically a book which goes from very cool to increasingly challenging and crazy No point in discussing whether this is among his best, they are all great.

    21. Definitely not my favorite Philip K Dick book but, as always, he paints a very vivid picture of his future society and provides lots of fun stuff like sentient cars appliances with major attitudes It did leave an impact on my life in that it s given me a new user name for online activities PrettyBlueFox, stolen from the name of the main characters gaming syndicate.

    22. Not one of my favorite PKD offerings out there.For this one, it feels like he tried to jam too many concepts into a too small novel.You ve got a post apocalyptic setting, aliens, hallucinations, impersonations, telekinesis, precognition, to name but a few, and the author quickly loses control of all these.

    23. I found it was littered with editing errors and tiny mistakes that really began to bug me after a while.I also found it didn t explain very well one of the key ideas that the whole plot hinged on.Over all I was unimpressed, but it was a quick fun read.

    24. Really enjoyed the twisting story, It had been a bad night, and when he tried to drive home he had a terrible argument with his car GREAT opening line, loved Pete s friends car with the attitude, by the ending of the story I really did not know where it was gonna go, great.
