What'll We Do with Ragland Park?


What'll We Do with Ragland Park?

What'll We Do With Ragland Park? is a science fiction short story by Philip K. Dick. First published in Amazing Stories magazine in 1963.

A good example of Dick's bizarre speculation on future media; this prophecy doesn't seem that far from the mark 40 years later. The "news clown" of this story doesn't seem, apart from his makeup, that different from some of the late night comedy hosts on American TV.

Notes:

*This story is a rare sequel to Stand-By, a variation on the classic theme of the prophecy that always comes true.
*The original manuscript title was "No Ordinary Guy".
