    1. The Crack in Space by Philip K. Dick deals with social and political issues, especially racial issues. I wrote a review of Farnham's Freehold by Robert A. Heinlein where the grandmaster explored elements of racism. True, both writers go about the business clumsily and with not a small bit of racism themselves, but I would remind a gentle twenty-first century reader that these writers put their thoughts down in the 1960s and the effort was courageous in and of itself. This also examines sexual, m [...]

    2. In a future, overpopulated world, a technician discovers a portal to an alternative earth. Jim Briskin (campaigning to be the first black president) sees settling this alternative world as solution to the problem of the seventy-or-so million cryogenically suspended people warehoused throughout the country. Called ‘bibs’, they have chosen to sleep until the world’s population problem can be resolved. The dominant hominid on this alt-earth it turns out is “Peking Man”—it appears as tho [...]

    3. Although he displayed remarkable prescience in many of his books, cult author Philip K. Dick was a good 72 years off the mark in his 18th sci-fi novel, "The Crack in Space." Originally released as a 40-cent Ace paperback in 1966 (F-377, for all you collectors out there), the novel takes place against the backdrop of the 2080 U.S. presidential election, in which a black man, Jim Briskin, of the Republican-Liberal party, is poised to become the country's first black president. (Dick must have like [...]

    4. The more PKD I read, and the more I learn about him and about literature theory, the more impressed I am with what he was able to accomplish, albeit mostly posthumously.Some observations:PKD was a genius, that has been stated over and over. Philosophical, imaginative, social commentary about a future that varies book to book. Common threads, sure, but all intrinsically different by a massive degree.That being said, when you really step back and take a look, his writing is SHIT.Technical shit. Re [...]

    5. I've read quite a few of Philip K. Dick's unique brand of science fiction over the years. A personal favourite of mine is The Man in the High Castle, which I've read 3 or 4 times. In 2017, I finished Time Out of Joint, which I enjoyed very much and now, most recently, The Crack in Space, which was quite excellent.The Crack in Space was written in 1966. The basic premise is an over-populated world, where people have the option of becoming 'Bibs'; they are cryogenically frozen, hopefully being awo [...]

    6. Regular readers of Philip K Dick would not expect him to write a novel exploring social issues, but in this case that is what he seems to think he is doing. The result is a muddle of ideas that try to stay topical while medium level PKD weirdness circles around them.The setting is the late 21st century, and overpopulation, combined with a shortage of jobs, has become the major problem facing the human race. The solution has been to warehouse those who request it in suspended animation with the p [...]

    7. A mid-period PKD novel (expanded from the novella Cantata 140 published in the July 1964 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.). It is a humorous novel packed with many unique ideas and interesting themes including over-population, politics and racism.Initially, unlike with the majority of PKD’s other works, I didn’t find this novel as interesting as others I’ve read. It seemed to lacked something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on Too conventional? But by the secon [...]

    8. I won't even bother to describe the plot. Suffice it to say that the elements include the first black President of the United States and pre-industrial ape men from another dimension. The plot is wildly inventive, but the typical Philip K. Dick flaws are all on full display. Too much dialogue? Check. Too many characters resulting in dissipation of focus? Check. Omniscient narrator with no clear point of view? Check. Still, if you're a fan -- which I am -- it's not completely bad. There are bette [...]

    9. There’s a unique style to Philip K. Dick’s work that can perhaps be called unforgiving: his writing isn’t easy and straightforward; you have to work at it and make sure you keep up, because he’s just going to throw you in the middle of his complex world and drag you along for one crazy ride. The Crack in Space is a perfect example of this, recently released in a minimalist-looking new edition from Mariner Books, where the world is at a distant point in our future and all is not well. Whi [...]

    10. Even when he is not at his very best, as with The Crack in Space, Philip K. Dick is eminently worth reading. Somehow, half a century ago, he anticipated several key facets of life in our time, starting with a black president and a racist society. Over 100 million Cols (Coloreds?) have volunteered to be frozen until the socioeconomic situation for them has improved -- so many, in fact, that the number of BiBs ("Bottled in Bond") is threatening the national budget.As a result of an accident to a J [...]

    11. Philip K. Dick is awesome. Most of the time. Here, he is just good. Not great. It was surprisingly tame for a Dick book, and the usual themes (Psionic Abilities, Reality Shifts, Hellish Introspection) were all sadly lacking. The most we get by way of toying with reality is a barely visited "alternate earth" and a single mutant pimping out women that are sort of half-women or something. Less than human anyway.Worth reading if you already like Philip K. Dick's work, but if you are unfamiliar I wou [...]

    12. Creo que no existe una versión editorial de "The Crack in Space", pero encontré una como "Cantata 140" (el otro nombre de este libro) que está traducida al español.Es una historia sobre racismos, poder, asesinato con toques de alcohol y prostitutas (¡amo a Dick!). Podría ser una buena mini serie sin romance por cómo comienza a mezclar a todos los personajes que tiene en un entramado perfecto, cada uno cumpliendo su rol y teniendo como principal a Jim Briskin, un candidato a presidente neg [...]

    13. A very rough plot which Dick barely fills in, but what a unique plot. Is this the first sci-fi novel that made use of the multiverse? I can only read Dick occasionally since I worry that all of life will start to bend and distort like his novels. Still, reading his novels is a healthy reminder that all is not as ordered and normal as we think.

    14. My Philip K. Dick ProjectEntry #31 - The Crack In Space (written Sep. 1963-Mar. 1974, published Feb. 1966) Jim Briskin, everyone's favorite news clown, is back for Round III, and this time, he's black! More accurately, in The Crack in Space, Briskin is a former news clown, and in the running to become America's first black president (sorry, Obama!) One of the more depressing thing about PKD's stories is how long he often (not always) predicted that flagrant and public racial discrimination would [...]

    15. ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.In Philip K. Dick’s The Crack in Space (1966), American technology and civilization has advanced so far that citizens can easily take a spaceship to make daily visits to an orbiting satellite whorehouse, personal Jifi-scuttlers are used to warp space/time so that people can quickly travel from home to work in a distant city, and overpopulation is such a public concern that millions of dispossessed Americans have chosen to be put in cryogenic storage unti [...]

    16. Stuff I Read - The Crack in Space by Philip K. Dick ReviewMan, Philip K. Dick has written some rather odd stuff. This is the second of three books of his that I'll be reading this year, and while Eye in the Sky was rather messed up, this one has it's own brand of weird. Of course, both stories are at least a bit about race, with The Crack in Space being much more direct and hitting. It's also about difference and about responsibility, about overpopulation and poverty and a whole lot of other thi [...]

    17. The Crack in Space was a chore to read. If this is any indication of a typical Philip K. Dick book, I am never going to attempt another one. First and foremost, this book has too many ideas squished into one novel (a short one too!). There is no way I can adequately summarise the over-complicated plot, except to say it involves a dystopian future society afflicted by over-population and rampant prostitution, widespread cryogenic freezing, the discovery of a tunnel to a parallel Earth, encounters [...]

    18. In an overpopulated world, millions of people have elected to become bibs (cryogenically frozen until the job market opens up), abortion centers are prospering, and prostitution has been made legal on orbiting satellites (to ease "frustrations", while preventing pregnancy). It's a huge problem faced by the presidential candidates, who must present solutions to this problem if they are to be elected. Jim Briskin announces in a public speech a possible solution. A company has stumbled upon a porta [...]

    19. Not one of Dick's better books, but still an interesting read and, occasionally, a fun one at that. I found it a bit shocking that in the 1960s, Dick was writing about issues that are very relevant today, such as abortion, a black president, etc. Before either was possible, in other words. The book is about a parallel earth, and our attempts to populate it with 70 million bibs, or people who had been frozen due to overpopulation. Most of them are black. As far as a standard Dick novel, I thought [...]

    20. I can see, sociologically, where Dick was headed with this one. As always, his novels are daring and ahead of their time. The Crack in Space was enjoyable, but it wasn't unforgettable enough to pick up again. Dialogue was a little heavy and vaguely droning sometimes. The storyline took a while to accomplish anything with. The amount of characters also never really paid off, they all felt similar except for Jim Briskin in style. It's classic paranoid Dick though, and the same personality is retai [...]

    21. A rather straight-forward, for Philip K. Dick, science fiction book about a futuristic election involving the first (potential) black president of the United States, overpopulation, racism, and what happens when one encounters the unexpected. The characters in the book are all flat and dimensionless, while the message underlying message is somewhat ham-handed and doesn't resonate the way it should. Despite this, I found it a nice read, perhaps because it is more approachable and less confusing t [...]

    22. Phillip K. Dick was a working writer and this book has that feel. I would be surprised if it took him more than a couple of weeks to write the thing. It has a muddled, hurried feeling to it. It is still an good book, though. P.K. Dick is still more imaginitive and amazing on his worst day than most sci-fi writers are in a life time. I have read many of his books and even though this one was mediocre it was still completly original. It raises some interesting moral questions and touches on import [...]

    23. I've definitely read better PKD books but The Crack in Space is by no means horrible. It's a creative plot that ends sort of abruptly; it kind of seems like Dick got bored right at the tail end of the novel and decided to wrap it up as quick as possible. Nonetheless, it's a good read for PKD fans, but is probably not the best recommendation for someone just getting into Dick.

    24. This was my first Philip K. Dick reading experience. I picked up this book not only because the price was right, but because I've heard he's one of the authors all science fiction fans should be familiar with. Well, I can now say I've read at least one of his stories, but I'm not sure I will be seeking out any additional titles.

    25. The first several (like eight) PKD books I read, I thought he was the oddest most unpredictable author I'd ever encountered. Such inscrutable choices and themes. Now, for like the last three I've read, I'm over that. I guess I'm used to him. And I love his writing more than ever. Still bizarre, but I know what to expect now. I LOVED THIS.

    26. Not one of his better efforts. Too short for the ideas it contains, not to mention an implausible take on social morays. That said, some of the ideas are first-rate and would have been wonderful at a decent length.

    27. Re-read this for the first time in years. Pervasive sense of dread as all the implications of this incredibly imaginative, terrifying colonial allegory gradually kick in. It's still shocking to me that this man was able to write so many great books in one lifetime.

    28. Interestingly prescient, with some major tension around the climax. The ending, however, feels like a worse let down than even PKD's often oddish pseudo-resolutions.
