How would you react to having a pink laser beam information directly into your brain and having the experience of simultaneously living in the present and the time of the Christian apostles? A writer of science fiction, Philip K. Dick used it as fodder for his last trilogy of books before his death. VALIS is the first of those, and probably the most autobiographical. The reader is left constantly wondering what is real, and whether or not the narrator is insane. I don't want to spoil any of the schizophrenic fun ? just read the book and try to figure it out for yourself.
