A weekly podcast wherein we freestyle ‘reviews’ of books we haven’t read, with tenacity, ingenuity and palpable desperation. We only judge a book by its cover!

45 · Physician Whom? (Philip K. Dick)

November 7, 2019

Cover artThis week, in "Illusione di Potere", by Philip K Dick: 

Richard just wants a few days off of his demeaning job as jumpsuit model, so he builds a robot out of old movie studio props to fill in for him.

But soon he finds his life spinning out of control as everyone--his boss, his wife, his parents--all think the android is the real thing! Now he has to find a way to outwit his own creation before it takes over his entire life forever.

Step one: get the robot addicted to prescription pharmaceuticals.

With thanks to friend-of-the-Library Ryan Campbell, an excellent independent author. Find him on Twitter at @ThePenDrake and check out his latest book, Forest Gods, the second in the recently-completed Fire Bearers trilogy, set in a mythical pre-historic Africa.

K draws a line in the sand. Khaki plans some bear-pranks.
