Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in If There Were No Benny Cemoli
by Philip K. Dick

"They brought the peace of the stars to ruined Earth ... but Earth had never asked for it!"

('If There Were No Benny Cemoli' by Philip K. Dick)

Outstanding story takes place after the Misadventure (aka, atomic war) on Earth. Representatives of human civilization on other planets come to Earth to understand what happened. A difficult task in any PKD story. Also, it appears that this story was first copyrighted in 1953 (according to a first edition copy of the 1969 Dick collection The Preserving Machine.)
