When CIA agent Chuck Rittersdorf and his psychiatrist wife, Mary, file for divorce, they have no idea that in a few weeks they’ll be shooting it out on Alpha III M2, the distant moon ruled by various psychotics liberated from a mental ward. Nor do they suspect that Chuck’s new employer, the famous TV comedian Bunny Hentman, will also be there aiming his own laser gun. How things came to such a darkly hilarious pass is the subject of Clans of the Alphane Moon, an astutely shrewd and acerbic tale that blurs all conventional distinctions between sanity and madness.

Baker & Taylor
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.

Not PKD's very best, but quite good and interesting, and almost among his very best.
