Content:

"A Maze of Death" (german title: "Irrgarten des Todes") starts out innocent enough. 14 people find themselves on the planet Delmak-0, under quite interesting circumstances.

14 strangers who encounter an environment that seems less than stable, almost surreal. They suspect being in a form of experiment and they die one by one ...

The question is, as so often with PKD: How far can you trust your reality to actually be reality? And what happens when different parameters are altered and the different characters encounter each other? And ultimately: If we were to do something in a simulation, how can we be sure to behave differently in the "real" reality?
