Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Louis Rosen and his partners sell people — ingeniously designed, historically authentic simulacra of personages such as Edwin M. Stanton and Abraham Lincoln. The problem is that the only prospective buyer is a rapacious billionaire whose plans for the simulacra could land Louis in jail. Then there's the added complication that someone — or something — like Abraham Lincoln may not want to be sold.

Is an electronic Lincoln any less alive than his creators? Is a machine that cares and suffers inferior to the woman Louis loves — a borderline psychopath who does neither? With irresistible momentum, intelligence, and wit, Philip K. Dick creates an arresting techno-thriller that suggests a marriage of Bladerunner and Barbarians at the Gate.

Synopsis:

It was as good as a real Abe Lincoln...or as bad, if you looked at it that way. Going into simulacra production was not the obvious step for a firm hitherto devoted to the manufacture of electronic organs, but business was bad.
