Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the world of The Minority Report, Commissioner John Anderton is the one to thank for the lack of crime. He is the originator of the Precrime System, which uses "precogs" — people with the power to see into the future — to identify criminals before they can do any harm. Unfortunately for Anderton, his precogs perceive him as the next criminal. But Anderton knows he has never contemplated such a thing, and this knowledge proves the precogs are fallible. Now, whichever way he turns, Anderton is doomed — unless he can find the precogs's "minority report" — the dissenting voice that represents his one hope of getting at the truth in time to save himself from his own system.

A film version of The Minority Report, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, will be released this summer —l; further proof of the enduring appeal of Philip K. Dick's visionary fiction.

Synopsis:

Philip K. Dick was born in Chicago in 1928 and lived most of his life in California. The author of thirty-six novels, including the acclaimed Blade Runner, and five short story collections, he won a Hugo Award for The Man in the High Castle, and a John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said. He died in 1982.
