Review: The Zap Gun

The Zap Gun
The Zap Gun by Philip K. Dick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another quirky but thought provoking book by a Science Fiction Master, The Zap Gun is set in the near future (2005) when the US and the Soviets have come to terms and are continually (and literally) beating their weapons into plowshares – big-name (and psychic) weapons designers have their ideas turned into pop culture kitsch. However, when actual aliens show up to enslave the planet, they’ve got to figure out how to make things work like they did before.

The story has plenty of twists in the Philip K. Dick manner, and it’s a pretty good sci-fi tale in general. Very readable.
