Breit sein in Science Fiction.

“Junktown”-Autor Matthias Oden mit einem hochinteressanten Essay über Drogen in SF-Romanen. Da kommt man automatisch auf Philip K. Dick und “Der dunkle Schirm” UND natürlich zu CAN-D und CHEW-Z (aus “Die drei Stigmata des Palmer Eldritch”, früher im Suhrkamp-Verlag viel effektiver betitelt mit “LSD-Astronauten”). 6 more words

Author's Note: A Scanner Darkly, PKD

This has been a novel about some people who were punished entirely too much for what they did. They wanted to have a good time, but they were like children playing in the street; they could see one after another of them being killed–run over, maimed, destroyed–but they continued to play anyhow. 651 more words
