The inspiration for the Columbia Pictures film Total Recall, directed by Len Wiseman and starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel. This ebook only edition of Philip K. Dick’s classic short story tells the story of Douglas Quail, an unfulfilled bureaucrat who dreams of visiting Mars, but can't afford the trip. Luckily, there is Rekal Incorporated, a company that lets everyday stiffs believe they’ve been on incredible adventures. The only problem is that when technicians attempt a memory implant of a spy mission to Mars, they find that real memories of just such a trip are already in Quail's brain. Suddenly, Quail is running for his life from government agents, but his memories might make him more of a liability than he is worth. Originally published as "We Can Remember it For You Wholesale."

The original Total Recall film incorporated the mars aspect at the end & liked the twist that neither film had.

I loved this short story. It allows you to join in this world and provide your imagination with so many paths that it ingrains the setting and characters into your mind completely with seemed little effort. One can identify with the characters and their motivations, yet see the whole picture. A masterpiece that should have been properly represented in movies.
