In Counter-Clock World, one of the most theologically probing of all of Dick's books, the world has entered the Hobart Phase - a vast sidereal process in which time moves in reverse. As a result, libraries are busy eradicating books, copulation signifies the end of pregnancy, people greet with, 'Good-bye', and part with, 'Hello', and underneath the world's tombstones, the dead are coming back to life. One imminent oldborn is Anarch Peak, a vibrant religious leader whose followers continued to flourish long after his death. His return from the dead has such awesome implications that those who apprehend him will very likely be those who control the fate of the world.
