On the arid colony of Mars, the only thing more precious than water may be a ten-year-old schizophrenic boy named Manfred Steiner. Although the UN has slated "anomalous" children for deportation and destruction, some suspect that Manfred's disorder may be a window into the future. But what sort of future? In Martian Time-Slip, Dick uses power politics and extraterrestrial real-estate scams, adultery, and murder to penetrate the mysteries of being and time.
The Golden Man
In the post-nuclear America, monstrous mutants roam freely. A government agency, the DCA, is formed to rid the world of mutants. But there is one of the new species that is not a monster: eighteen year old Cris Johnson. He is a perfect specimen of young manhood, an icon of masculine beauty. He is the golden man. But the DCA's fear that he might mate and produce a new race of golden men with survival skills far superior to ordinary men makes his destruction paramount.

PHILIP KINDRED DICK (1928 1982) was an American science-fiction writer. In addition to forty-four books currently in print, he produced a number of short stories and minor works. At least seven of his stories have been adapted into films. Foreshadowing the cyberpunk sub-genre, he brought the anomic world of California to many of his works, exploring sociological and political themes in his early novels and stories, often dominated by neo-feudal corporate quasigovernments, while his later work tackled drugs and theology.Review:
The movie Next based on The Golden Man is being released April 27th, starring Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore, and Jessica Biel. --From the publisher
