Dick, Philip K.  
Counter-Clock World
Time has begun moving backward. People greet each other with 'goodbye', blow smoke into cigarettes, and rise from the dead. When one of those rising dead is the famous and powerful prophet Anarch Peak, a number of groups start a mad scramble to find him first. But their motives are not exactly benevolent, because Anarch Peak may just be worth more dead than alive, and these groups will do whatever they must to send him back to the grave.

Deus Irae
After World War III, the Servants of Wrath cult deified the mysterious Carlton Lufteufel, creator of the doomsday weapon that wiped out much of humanity. But to worship the man, they need an image of him as a god, and no one has ever seen him. So the high priests send a limbless master painter named Tibor McMasters into the wilderness on a mission to find Lufteufel and capture his likeness. Unfortunately for Tibor, the nation's remaining Christians are willing to kill to ensure that the so-called Deus Irae remains hidden.

Dr. Futurity
When Dr. Parsons wakes up from a car accident, he finds himself in a future populated almost entirely by the young - death is fetishized, and those who survive to old age are put down. Parsons, with his desire to save lives, finds himself a criminal and outcast. But for one revolutionary group, he may be just the savior they need to heal and revive their cryogenically frozen leader. And when he and the group journey to 1500s California, what they find causes them to question what they know about history and the underpinnings of their society.

Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said
Jason Taverner, world-famous talk show host and man-about-town, wakes up one day to find that no one knows who he is - including the vast databases of the totalitarian government. And in a society where lack of identification is a crime, Taverner has no choice but to go on the run with a host of shady characters, including crooked cops and dealers of alien drugs. But do they know more than they are letting on? And just how can a person's identity be erased overnight?

A Maze of Death
Delmak-O is a dangerous planet. Though there are only fourteen citizens, no one can trust anyone else, and death can strike at any moment. The planet is largely unexplored, populated mostly by gelatinous cube-shaped beings that give cryptic advice in the form of anagrams. Deities can be spoken to directly via a series of prayer amplifiers and transmitters, but they may not be happy about it. And the mysterious building in the distance draws all the colonists to it.

Our Friends from Frolix 8
Every citizen of Earth is tested as a child; some are found to be super-smart New Men, and some are Unusuals with various psychic powers; these join the elite who run the world. The vast majority are Undermen, performing menial jobs in an overpopulated world. Nick Appleton is an Underman, content to go with the flow and eke out an existence - until his son is classified as an Underman. Strengthening his resolve, and energizing the resistance movement, is news that a great resistance leader is returning from a trip to the furthest reaches of space. And he's brought help: a giant, indestructible alien.
