I never read Notes from Underground. What I read by Dostoevsky never seemed SF to me. Thanks for the hint.
As for Dick, I just finished Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and started now The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch. I also got Time Out of Joint, so I'll be reading for sure soon. Thank you!
Baen books has them in non DRM'ed formats, including Mobi and Epub.

On Baen's site, apart from monthly bundles, I can only see We the Underpeople and When the People Fell. Bot priced at 6$ but it says "Not Currently Available".
Anyway, I'll read first the stories I have

Yes, it's an interesting use of a clever algorithm, but I personally think it is not very useful overall.

I read sci-fi almost exclusively in my teens and early 20's. I think a good way to find authors you like in the genre is short stories-there are many anthologies out there, and you can sample a lot of writers quickly. Not to mention the format of short stories, if you can't get into one, drop it and read on!

I've not read it since 1978, but the teenage me was blown away by it. I've been struggling to think of a book that's like it. Again, I'd have to reread it, but Dick's own A Scanner Darkly also had an effect on me.
