Masters of Chaos

From the May 6, 2007,
New York Times,
Charles McGrath on
Philip K. Dick:

His early novels, written in two weeks or less, were published in double-decker Ace paperbacks that included two books in one, with a lurid cover for each. “If the Holy Bible was printed as an Ace Double,” an editor once remarked, “it would be cut down to two 20,000-word halves with the Old Testament retitled as ‘Master of Chaos’ and the New Testament as ‘The Thing With Three Souls.'”

As for “the thing with
three souls”–

Part I:
Educate, Empower, Entertain
— Motto of Yolanda King

Part II:
Three universities
(but not those of
Martin Myerson)–
Princeton, Harvard, Cambridge
