Issues of psychology, and mental illness specifically, can be found frequently in various science fiction works, from Star Wars to Heinlein’s Strangers in a Strange Land (McMahon, 1989). One... More > particular science fiction writer, Philip K. Dick, uses mental illness frequently in his works, and especially in his 1964 novel Martian Time-Slip (MTS). Collections of Dick’s essays, such as The Shifting Realities of Philip K. Dick (1995), reveal Dick was quite interested in mental illness and the current theories on it during the time he was living and writing. This manuscript explores Dick’s portrayal of autism and connects the descriptions of autism in the novel to popular research done during and before Dick’s writing of MTS. The text focuses on Immanuel Kant and his theories and then ties early infantile autism and childhood schizophrenia into the ideas of Kant to explore the character Manfred from MTS. This book ALSO includes an annotated bibliography with over 50 entries!< Less

This group of stories contains a variety in a style different from other short story collections. The last story is a novella. Some of the stories can bring the reader to tears. One, with a tongue...

One of the stories pokes fun at a store owner and another at an elementary school teacher. "Brothers" and "Progress" are very close to events that actually took place. The novella also has its basis in fact, but is fictionalized. A couple of these stories have been published in magazines. My Name is Sharon Young, but I was born a McNaney.

The Maniac Manifesto By Nick Caligari

THE UNDERGROUND NOVEL YOU WERE NEVER MEANT TO READ! “I’ll commit suicide soon enough. Maybe before the end of this book, if we’re both lucky. In fact, you can even think of what... More > you’re reading as the longest suicide note in history.” Equal parts sex comedy, misanthropic rant, and hate letter to the world, THE MANIAC MANIFESTO is the radical confession of a self-proclaimed “ordinary man.” By turns darkly humorous and outrageously offensive, it chronicles the exploits of its nameless anti-hero who, following an unhappy love affair, voluntarily descends into what he calls “the maggotlife”—a dark night of the soul from the depths of which issues the grim testament of a man determined to tell the absolute truth. Even if it kills him. Nihilistic, misogynistic, and apocalyptic, THE MANIAC MANIFESTO is a text like virtually no other—an admission of everything we’ve been taught to suppress, conceal, and never speak aloud, not to others, not even to ourselves.< Less
