Sneak peak at dual review of Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said by Philip K. Dick.

It was a great honor to complete this study with Tales. He was excellent to work with and made the experience that much better seeing this work of art from another side.

I liked reading what you guys thought about the novel. I’ve heard more Phillip K. Dick stories on audiobooks than I’ve read them. This one is way up there on enjoyment of those audiobooks, along with “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” (PKD could be lively with book titles!) To me, “Flow My Tears” has a “what the hell’s gonna happen next?” kind of vibe to it. Like the scene at Alys’s home, taking drugs and looking at the records. Something about which artifacts are genuine and which are fake, I think (if memory serves correctly). Also, thanks for including the various book covers — cool to see different ways of showing the book.

I like the dramatic way the title is shown — it really makes the cover stand out. But I’d say my favorite is the cover near the top, just underneath “Imagine waking up in a decaying hotel room … and it’s all gone.” The diminishing archways in the shape of a head — the image grabs my attention, and it conveys the mind-bending feeling of the story.

Great review and combined post, S.D. You have led me to Tales’s cool blog, too, so thank you! I need to give this book a reread. There’s been a lack of PKD in my life for too long.
