This is the first PKD book that I was straight up disappointed by. As others have pointed out, this is not a complete book and it shows. The stapling on of the whole middle section saps any momentum that the book had built up and is tonally inconsistent with the rest of the book. It's even more disappointing because the rest of the book shows such promise. The characters and their motivations are richly drawn and the twist at the end is brutally effective. Plus it's just a collection of wicked interesting ideas for a science fiction novel to explore: should we blindly trust new technology just because we're told it's superior? What are the ramifications of wonton disregard for our planet? What would we give up for a fresh start?

The pieces are there but they never cohere into a satisfying whole. It's too bad, because this could have been among PKD's best.

I've been a fan of PKD's short stories for years and while this novel feels like two books spliced together with an acid trip in the middle it was enjoyable and includes such wonderful concepts as "Thingisms" and insults such as "That slobbering hyphenator!" It certainly won't be to everyone's taste, even as a fan, this is PKD at his most wordy - like he ate a dictionary and thesaurus and then decided to tell you how each word tasted - but as a fan, yes, it'll do nicely.

LIES, INC. was thoroughly distorted by the screwy editing. Despite the declaration in the last paragraph of the AFTERWORD by Paul Williams, the insertion of 100 pages into the middle of Dick's novella, THE UNTELEPORTED MAN, couldn't be the way PKD intended. It makes no sense as published. The reader should skip from page 73 to page 173 and, thus, read one coherent story. Then, as Williams fails to suggest, read the 100 page insertion (P 73 to P 172) as a second novella. It is two books in one. Yes, there are overlapping characters in both books, but it just doesn't fly as published. Each story has a different plot.

The broken up 100 pages of THE UNTELEPORTED MAN tells the story of ben Applebaum attempting an 18 year journey to the planet, Whalesmouth, in a regular old space ship. Applebaum wants to prove that the one way teleporting is a phony, German scheme to start up a military force that could one day conquer earth. The other inserted 100 pages tells the story of the same character being teleported to Whalesmouth, then shot up with a drastic hallucinogenic. The LSD visions open up the possibility of inhabiting several gruesome paraworlds. The theme there was to fit in or die. There really is no coherent plot flow connecting the two stories. The naive attempt to combine them amounted to an unforgivable distortion of both. Someone must speak out for the deceased Dick.

Unlike a lot of PKD fans I really like this book. I've read the original novella (The Unteleported Man) once and the 1983 Berkeley version (also titled The Unteleported Man) with the additional 1965 chapters included, three times. I am a hard core Philip K Dick fan having read most of his novels, stories and a couple of volumes of his non fiction, as well as two biographies. He was a genuis for writing mind blowing novels that posed fundamental questions were "What is Real?" and "What is human?" The hard sciences didn't really interest him nearly as much as philosophy, theology and politics. At the same time his work blends the comic, the absurdist and the surreal in very strange and wonderful ways. For those new to PKD I would recommend starting with Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, Now Wait for Last Year, The Martian Time Slip, The Man in the High Castle, or Ubik. If you like those you might enjoy LIES INC. as well. Or if you want to dive right into his most bizzare and experimental work, go right ahead.

Actually the previous version, "The Unteleported Man", was one of the first I read by Dick. And I've always enjoyed the second portion (here inserted into the orginal novella instead of tacked on at the end as it was previously)which consists of an interstellar war fought with psychedelic drugs and time warping weapons, cephalopod-like alien invaders, murderous androids, diabolical nazi scientists, and multiple paraworlds. Several explanations are offered as to the reasons behind the unfolding events. All of them are contradictory and none of them difinitive.
