Oh, yes, I'd forgotten about Nick. His status as a hero was somewhat ambiguous, though, given that even his employees used to refer to "the clinkered cockles of his greedy heart" -- and meant it. (David Falkayn finally read him the riot act when he got TOO greedy at other people's expense, and forced him to angrily back down.)

As for Anderson vs. Dick, I nearly idolize Anderson, in spite of his occasional stylistic quirks -- because of the way he uses a virtually encyclopedic knowledge of both the natural sciences and history in his stories, which thus remain as fresh as ever even half a century after he wrote them -- but I see no point in spitting on Crazy Phil, who lest we forget, really did try to focus on some genuine, important and extremely disturbing philosophical and religious subjects, even if he never came up with any really convincing answers to his questions. (How many of us do, for God's sake?) The two authors were trying to do entirely different things; it's like comparing apples and rutabagas. (By the way, did you know that Anderson actually turned up as a CHARACTER in one of Dick's stories in 1964?)
