Hardback of Philip K Dick's Paycheck and other short stories.

Product Description
PAYCHECK, originally written as a short story by Philip K. Dick and first published in 1953, centres on an electrician who wakes up to discover his employer has erased his memory of the past two years -- as a security measure. When he tries to collect his paycheck, he finds he has previously signed a release replacing the money with a bag of random objects. Previous film adaptations of Dick's short stories have included the box office smash hits MINORITY REPORT, TOTAL RECALL and BLADE RUNNER, released shortly after Dick died in 1982.

Also available - Turkish Bandit by Boris Akunin. Haven't read it yet, but looks good:

Review
'[Farndorin is] surely the most engagingly diffident detective since Sherlock Holmes. The descriptive details is wonderful, too, bringing to life a range if military types who would not be out of place in War and Peace.' -- Christina Koning TIMES (1.10.05) 'an exciting gallop through 19th-century Europe complete with parodic characters and outrageous moustaches. Derring is done and buckles swashed, while at the book's heart lies a melancholic and believable detective - and it works. Fandorin is a fascinating character and this is an excellent read.' TELEGRAPH (15.10.05) 'great entertainment.' OBSERVER 'Boris Akunin's famous detective,Erast Fandorin, combines the elegance of Lord Peter Wimsey, the sangfroid of James Bond and the uncanny intellect of Sherlock Holmes.' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH (20.11.05) 'Turkish Gambit is an excellent historical pastiche...Akunin sets and maintains a cracking pace, and the result - intricately plotted, full of chicanery, and genuinely funny - is hugely entertaining.' -- Laura Wilson GUARDIAN (3.12.05)
Omer Ali, TIME OUT (5-12 January 2005)
'this is...the best so far...[a] sheer swashbuckling frenzy, perhaps in the style of George MacDonald Fraser.'

Personally, I thought the movie of Paycheck was under-rated too, while others like Total Recall I thought got praise that was undeserved.
