Philip K Dick: The Man In The High Castle

21:24:35, viso irta kultura naplójába
The Man in the High Castle is a 1962 alternate history novel by science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. The novel is set in the former United States, in 1962, fifteen years after the Axis Powers defeated the Allies in World War II and the U.S. surrendered to Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan.

While not the first piece of alternate history fiction, the novel helped to define this type of story as a serious literary genre. It won the prestigious Hugo Award and helped make Dick well-known in science fiction circles. It is one of Dick's most tightly-structured and character-focused novels--he spent most of his life writing to pay bills, and so wrote quickly. This was the only novel for which he had the luxury of writing several drafts and polishing it.
