This week, we have a short story from master of science fiction, Philip K Dick. Published in 1952 in Planet Stories, 'Beyond Lies the Wub' is Dick's first genre story. Commentators have observed that it is indicative of his slightly paranoid style that would become a feature in his later works. So, what exactly is a wub?
