The Cosmic Puppets

Philip K. Dick

synopsis

The Cosmic Puppets begins like an episode of The Twilight Zone and then ramps up the strangeness and fantasy to epic levels. Because the mystery is about more than one man or one town—this is a battle between gods.
      Following an inexplicable urge, Ted Barton returns to his idyllic Virginia hometown for a vacation, but when he gets there, he is shocked to discover that it has utterly changed. The stores and houses are all different, and he doesn’t recognize anybody. The mystery deepens when he checks the town’s historical records…and reads that he died nearly twenty years earlier.
      As he attempts to uncover the secrets of the town, Barton is drawn deeper into the puzzle, and into a supernatural battle that could decide the fate of the universe.
      This new edition of The Cosmic Puppets has a new introduction by Michael Swanwick, new cover artwork by Peter Strain, and archival artwork by Chris Moore. The edition is limited to 300 signed and numbered copies. Each book is signed by Michael Swanwick, Peter Strain, and Chris Moore, with an Estate-approved facsimile signature by Philip K. Dick.
       The specifications for this set are: one book, printed in four colors and one color throughout, bound in European cloth, with ribbon marker, patterened endpapers, stunning dustjacket, and ribbon marker.
