"Fine HAL, then I'll crawl in the pod bay window!"
On a fateful birthday about a decade ago, I was going to invest in a gift to myself and get the Library of America three-volume P. K. Dick collection. I had only read A Scanner Darkly at that time. I didn't get the set, and now a decade later I've still ONLY read Dick's A Scanner Darkly. Time's winged chariot and other obligations create enough constraints to make me think twice about making the investment (and I don't really want to spare the pocket change right now :(), so I ask for your help, poll style: if I read just one other P. K. Dick volume, which should it be?
I really like Dr Bloodmoney. His best written I think is Man in the High Castle. Deus Irae, which he co-wrote with Roger Zelazny, I also think is great.

He might actually be a better short story writer than a novelist - give any collection a go.
