Philip K Dick was to theological science fiction as James Brown was to funky RB music its spiritual godfather, its benchmark practitioner and a source of influence whose ever widening ripples expanded out into other genres and our culture as a whole A Maze of Death, published in 1970, was one of his better novels, combining thought provoking science fiction with an introspective search for truth that was a central element in much of Dick s later fiction.Behind Ubik, this was his work most frequently referenced in the The Exegesis of Philip K Dick and this is the work most akin to Ubik published in 1969 in its otherworldly theological framework In both books there are a group of individuals loosely connected together beneath the notice of a dispassionate, uncaring, perhaps even hostile deity But unlike Ubik and the earlier 1957 publication Eye in the Sky, A Maze of Death places religion at stage center, with a focused if surreal spotlight on the caricature Personifying and exemplifying the maxim alone in a crowd A Maze of Death thematically describes Dick s recurring element of individualism and isolation.In a review for Joseph Conrad s novel Victory I commented on how Conrad fans tended to break down into groups who favored Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Nostromo, or Victory Similarly, Philip K Dick fans can be grouped into factions who choose as his best work one of the following Do Androids Dream of E

A Maze of Death is one of Phillip K Dick s most aggravating books It is almost unbearably dark and loaded with insensitive protagonists who often act like spoiled brats And just as you think you figured it out, it becomes even nihilistic and disorganized.It is also one of Dick s best novels.It starts out like a science fiction version of a horror novel where the characters are sure to get picked off I kept thinking about Agatha Christie s And Then There Were None for it has a similar idea A group of strangers end up on an island planet not knowing the reason they are there and are put in a situation that may mean death for some or all But this is Phillip K Dick so nothing is as it seems In many ways this is a transitional work in which the author s Gnostic interests start to dominate his writings In the book, God exist as a perceived reality, prayers are sent electronically and people live by their bible titled How I Rose From the Dead in My Spare Time and So can You It is also one of Dicks few works that explores the idea
The beginning of Dick s later God novels, but still predating his 2 3 74 pink beam episode and his later VALIS Trilogy Gnostic Trilogy God Trilogy , A Maze of Death is a philosophical SF novel that explores the nature of God, religion, and the way we as both individuals and a society try to deal with the various levels of reality and the inevitability of death Reading this, it was hard not to see huge chunks of this novel that were cribbed by LOST good tv bo
Strange, metaphysical sci fi murder mystery where Dick s incipient theological ideas are mashed, a little awkwardly, with his pulp fiction sensibilities The set up is a bleak planet called Delmak O, which has a population of just fourteen human colonists None is very likeable and they don t get on with each other well soon after their arrival, someone or something starts killing them off one by one Meanwhile, they have odd visions of a mysterious building somewhere nearby on the planet s surface, which suggests that nothing they see around them is what it appears to be.The ontological paranoia is classic Dick, though the ending, which takes the form of a big season finale style reveal, is unusually dark In a 1987 speech, Kim Stanley Robinson made the intriguing suggestion that the killings in A Maze of Death represent Dick himself murdering the cast of stock characters he had been using in his books for the last umpteen years and it s certainly true that after this one, we start to see a new kind of Philip K Dick character, especially after the author s religiou
Philip K Dick s sci fi take on Agatha Christie s And Then There Were None is nicely set up and has a fulfilling ending The story is a mish mash of various genres, science fiction, murder mystery, cyber punk, space opera, futurism and dystopia Philip K Dick blends in human emotions, survival instincts with a weird landscape of an unexplored world The novel broadly progresses in dialogues and is not very vivid, except where particularly required Physiognomy of the alien being, Tench at Delmak O is not very well explored, but probably that is intentional The writing is not sterling, and did not appeal to me, but on the whole the plot and the novel in its entirety is good I doubt anybody else will ever dare to retrace Agatha Christie in a sci fi version I do not want to add a spoiler, but the most persistent theme of the novel is hope and how it is essential for human ex
I don t know if it was the translation, but I found the writing, the dialogues mostly, somewhat amateurish So much so, that I thought it was one of his earlier works, until I found out it wasn t Once , Dick blends sc
