I think I'm a fan of PKD, but haven't read enough to say for sure. So I picked up a discounted Simulacra at Dog Eared Books on Valencia a few months back and finally got it started. In a word BORING. Really, quite lame. I suppose when it came out in the sixties, it might have provided some sort of parable to cold war, big business, etc. But now, it's unfocused, too many characters, and just no one interesting enough to care for. Not one of his best.
