What Phillip K. Dick book should i read next?

I read Ubik. I like mind-bending solipsism books that question reality.

I was looking for the Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch but couldn't find it at the bookstore.

They had "The Cosmic Puppet", "flow my tears the policeman said" and "eye in the sky".

I think "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" or "A Scanner Darkly" wouldn't be mind-bending enough(at least right now).

Update:

I don't like reading books off a glowing screen even though i'm typing this(i know it's irrational but w/e).

Update 2:

Using the updated purple American site i can see "Dick" spelled out D. i. c. k. but on the green and white canada site i see the astericks. Weird.

    WOW... I can't believe that Yahoo! now censors the NAME Dïck... As in "Short for Richard" or in this case, a man's last name.

    WTF, Yahoo!?

    Philip K. Dïck has a long list of published works... Here's his Bibliography:

    http://tinyurl.com/oml8uhq (I had to TinyURL it because Yahoo! even censors it in URL)

    The bibliography of Philip K. Dick includes 44 novels, 121 short stories, and 14 short story collections published by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick (December 16, 1928 – March 2, 1982) during his lifetime.

    My goal is to read them ALL!!!

    I recommend "A Scanner Darkly", but you've already considered it...

    Is there any way you can read eBooks? Because there are MANY places to get his works online...

    He's a fascinating person both as an author and as just a person, such as his paranormal experiences and mental health issues: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_K._Dick

    If you're unable to find something of his to read, try:

    Robert A. Heinlein

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_A._Heinlein

    or

    Larry Niven's Ringworld Series

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Niven

    (First read Ringworld, then start the Fleet of World series, then finish Ringworld series, then read Known Space series.)

    or

    .

    Alan Dean Foster

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Dean_Foster

    (Humanx Commonwealth Universe is amazing, but read the Founding of the Commonwealth series FIRST and then Pip and Flinx and the Icerigger Series.)
