    It's hard to review a book of short stories, but it definitely enjoyed most of the short stories. I was not sure why the story "Beyond the Door" about the cuckoo clock was included as it felt a bit of dud and not really science fiction. I was intrigued by the short story called "The Gun", but I was confused if the central race was supposed to be human or the planet was human, it was never made clear and that took away from the story. "The Crystal Crypt" was by far the most confusing it descripte It's hard to review a book of short stories, but it definitely enjoyed most of the short stories. I was not sure why the story "Beyond the Door" about the cuckoo clock was included as it felt a bit of dud and not really science fiction. I was intrigued by the short story called "The Gun", but I was confused if the central race was supposed to be human or the planet was human, it was never made clear and that took away from the story. "The Crystal Crypt" was by far the most confusing it descripted a very confusing culture of Martian colonies and life that made no sense but the story itself was not bad. "The Skull" was a forgettable story that made me feel the sequence of events made no sense. The story "The Defenders" was also an interesting commentary on human capacity for violence and how illogical is it. My favorite was "Beyond Lies the Wub", which introduced sentience into a creature assumed to be food and its telepathic abilities. And for the life of me I can't even remember what the 7th story was about. Ultimately, there was some intriguing, average, dud, and forgetable stories here. A nice quick read to pass the time though

    A fun and quick read collection of some of PKDs earlier works. Lots of science fiction and political elements in these stories. Some twist endings can be seen coming from a mile away but Dick was the pioneer of these stories. Just keep that in mind as you read. These were pre psychedelic days of his as well so even though many are based in the future, they all make fair amounts of sense. Definitely a fun read for fans of his or pulp 50s science fiction.

    I would give it 3 1/2 stars. Contains The Minority Report which was made into a movie.
