Publisher's Summary

Eons after the last nuclear war, humans have become the inferior race. Cities have become segregated, and robots rule the world. The robots did have a sense of justice, though. If a human could score high enough on an annual test, he could move up in society. There was a catch, though. The test was so slanted toward robot mentality and knowledge, a human didn't have a chance. Then James P. Crow (not his real name) arrives on the scene with his window that sees into the past and the future.

Philip K. Dick takes a real shot at a social injustice that existed in America when this short story, read by award-winning narrator Mike Vendetti, appeared in the May 1954 issue of Planet Stories.

    "Great Example of PKD's Magic"
    Any additional comments?

    I REALLY loved this short story. It's not on ANY of the collections of PKD short stories that I had purchased in the past, so this was a real treat for me.

    In a few hundred years, machines are the masters over humanity.

    Although this idea has been toyed with by MANY different authors in MANY different ways, Philip K. Dick's take on the idea is easily one of my new favorites.

    I can't remember how much Audible charged me for this audiobook, but I KNOW it wasn't more than 5 bucks... As far as I'm concerned, if something can keep me totally entertained for 43 minutes, it is DEFINITELY worth shelling out a fish note.

    Be sure to grab this one!
