Summary
"Clans of the Alphane Moon" deals with one of Philip K. Dick s favorite themes: mental illness and what that actually means. The Alphane moon may be full of people with clinical disorders, but are the "normal" people who are supposed to cure them really any saner?"
Summary
When the Alphane moon becomes an insane asylum, its inmates, left alone, form clans based on their respective psychoses, but when Earth psychologist Mary Rittersdorf attempts to rehospitalize these lunatics, they retaliate against her invasion of their privacy
