Brand new and unread, ships well padded and boxed with the collector in mind. Here's what the publisher had to say on this one. Razor sharp in its depiction of drug-induced paranoia and madness, A Scanner Darkly by Philip K.
Dick is as unnerving as it is riveting. Set in a dystopian Orange County, California, in the then-future of June 1994, Substance D is the most toxic drug to ever find its way onto the streets. The drug destroys the links between the brains two hemispheres, causing, first, disorientation, and then irreversible brain damage. Bob Arctor is an undercover narcotics agent desperate to discover the ultimate source of supply, but to find any kind of lead he has to pose as a user, and inevitably, become one as addicted as those he works among.First published in 1977, A Scanner Darkly received the 1978 BSFA Award for Best Novel, and the Graouilly dOr Award upon the novels 1979 publication in France. In 2006, writer/director Richard Linklater shot a live-action film, starring Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr. Woody Harrelson, and Winona Ryder, and then animated over the underlying images creating an eerily lifelike and richly detailed animated film adaptation.
Scanner Darkly is steeped in an insiders knowledge of 1960s drug culture. Dick once stated of the novel, Everything in A Scanner Darkly , I actually saw. Based largely on his own experiences and the many friends he met and lost along the way, A Scanner Darkly is Philip K. Dicks deeply personal exploration on the fragility of identity, how we choose to define ourselves, and how easily that definition can be altered and obliterated.
