THE DEFENDERS – A nuclear war renders life on the surface impossible. A future race is relegated to life in metal bunkers. The Defenders by Philip K Dick derives its name from robot soldiers defending underground inhabitants from an ongoing war. The ending reveals that the war ended long ago, the robots had not informed the subterranean dwellers, thought to be immature and incapable of peace. The author was a prolific maverick of the sci-fi genre who wasn’t fully appreciated in his lifetime. His books have an enormous readership and have been translated to multiple media projects. The following is a short list of some of my favorites.
1.    Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
2.    The Best of Philip K Dick
3.    The Defenders (Short Story)
4.    Colony (Short Story)
