In "Time Out Of Joint", Philip K. Dick
puts the protagonist Ragle Gumm in a story line Gumm
believes to be 1959 (the year the novel came out). Gumm
is the long-standing champion in a gueswork newspaper
puzzle contest, for which he believes to have developed
a solving system.
In fact, it is 1998 already and the rest of the reality
might not be what it seems to be ...
This is classic, in my opinion and it could actually
be a very nice movie. Maybe they will shoot it someday
when the special effects and action-craze has worn off.
If you like stories that set
up alternate realities running parallel to an actual
reality, this is for you.
