galactic pot-healer

Just finished Galactic Pot-Healer by Philip K Dick. It was poor - badly written, garbled, disjointed, all over the place, easily the worst of his I've read. I wondered if it was written during some drug-addled period, say, when he was writing rubbish, but looking at the bibliography on Wikipedia it's in the middle of some which are considered to be among his classics (eg two years after Do Androids, two before Flow My Tears). Funny old world.

A quick google kicks up various reviews, all of which love it to a greater or lesser extent. Funnier old world.
