About this item
Sometimes even gods need help. In "Galactic Pot-Healer "that god is an alien creature known as The Glimmung, which looks alternately like a flaming wheel, a teenage girl, and a swirling mass of ocean life. In order to raise a sunken city, he summons beings from across the galaxy to Plowman s Planet. Joe Fernwright is one of those summoned, needed for his skills at pot-healing repairing broken ceramics. But from the moment Joe arrives on Plowman s Planet, things start to go awry. Is the Glimmung good or evil? Are Joe and his friends helping to save Plowman s Planet or destroy it? Told as only Philip K. Dick can, "Galactic Pot-Healer "is a wildly funny tale of aliens, gods, and ceramics.
