Ragle Gumm is an ordinary man leading an ordinary life, except that he makes his living by entering a newspaper contest every day -- and winning, every day. But he gradually begins to suspect that his life -- indeed his whole world -- is an illusion, constructed around him for the express purpose of keeping him docile and happy. But if that is the case, what is his real world like, and what is he actually doing every day when he thinks he is guessing 'Where Will The Little Green Man Be Next?'

This isn't his best novel, but it is still a satisfying read. The sense of paranoia and creeping madness is there, as is usual in Philip Dick's work. If you've never read Philip Dick, I would go with one of his other pieces, but for initiated fans, this will surely do the trick.
