Read full description of the books:
The brilliant science-fiction talent of Philip K. Dick is at its best in this new book, which contains one complete short novel & four long novelettes. Here are unusual adventures in the future, powerful stories of such varied subjects as the ultimate guided missile, psi-power crime prevention, mutational supermen & the unexpected in robots.
In an introduction to this book, Anthony Boucher says that these stories "show the same fertile speculative mind that distinguishes the novels, plus an exuberant, almost extravagant love of wild, melodramatic action. As in the novels, you'll find reflections of our own society in these pictures of the future, plus one of Dick's most characteristic qualities: the chilling symbolism of absolute nightmare."

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.
