9780440199076: Zap Gun

In this biting satire, the Cold War may have ended, but the eastern and western governments never told their citizens. Instead they created an elaborate ruse, wherein each side comes up with increasingly outlandish doomsday weapons—weapons that don’t work. But when aliens invade, the top designers of both sides have to come together to make a real doomsday device—if they don’t kill each other first.

With its combination of romance, espionage, and alien invasion, The Zap Gun skewers the military-industrial complex in a way that’s as relevant today as it was at the height of the Cold War.

From the Publisher:

'ONE OF THE MOST ORIGINAL PRACTITIONERS WRITING ANY KIND OF FICTION, PHILIP K. DICK MADE MOST OF THE EUROPEAN AVANT-GARDE SEEM NAVEL-GAZERS IN A CUL-DE-SAC' - Sunday Times

'I SEE DICK AS A MAJOR 21ST CENTURY WRITER, AN INFLUENTIAL "FICTIONAL PHILOSOPHER" OF THE QUANTUM AGE' - Timothy Leary

From the Inside Flap:

Scaldingly sarcastic yet enduringly empathetic, The Zap Gun is Dick?s remarkable novel depicting the insanity of the arms race. Lars Powderdry and Lilo Topchev are counterpart weapons fashion designers for a world divided into two factions?Wes-bloc and Peep-East. Since the Plowshare Protocols of 2002, their job has been to invent elaborate weapons that only seem massively lethal. But when alien satellites hostile to both sides appear in the sky, the two are brought together in the dire hope that they can create a weapon to save the world, a task made all the more difficult by Lars falling in love with Lilo even as he knows she?s trying to kill him.
