I've always enjoyed Dick's writing, but don't you sometimes think he wrote too much? Don't get me wrong, when he's good he's very good, and almost every novel has that spirit that keeps you entranced, but I just wish that some of those superfluous works weren't around. I realise that he was a sci-fi writer stuck with all the baggage that the genre had entailed (pulp, homogenity and laziness) and how he was constantly trying to break away from that label... But still, for every 'Man In The High Castle' or 'A Scanner Darkly' there are at least two other lesser works...what do you think?
