... Wish fulfillment  in "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" is not as simple. Deciding to fulfill a long-held desire to visit Mars, a minor clerk engages the services of Rekal, Inc., a commercial illusion mill. he argues that an objective illusion deludes but a subjective illusion will satisfy. The memory implant fails because Rekal operators uncover evidence of an earlier, not completely erased memory of a Martian trip while acting as a secret agent. After much unpleasantness at the hands of the secret Interplan group, our clerk-cum-agent returns to Rekal to buy, of all possible realities, a memory implant in which he fulfills a boyhood dream of saving earth from alien invasion. {Hazel Pierce}
