Beyond the Door, by Phillip K. Dick

Some of you have been asking when I’d get around to including some Phillip K. Dick on this site, but now the suspense is at an end – or, more like it, it’s only just beginning, because this story, like the rest of Dick’s writings, packs a pretty punch. Dick left us over thirty years ago, but he saw a lot of things coming a long way off. Like this comment, resurrected for the Snowden era: There will come a time when it isn’t ‘They’re spying on me through my phone’ anymore. Eventually, it will be ‘My phone is spying on me’. That time is today. Touché, Phillip.

Regarding tonight’s podcast: I’ve never much cared for ticking clocks and watches myself, let alone chimes and cuckoos, and this story goes a long way to explaining why.
