Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A master of science fiction, a voice of the changing counterculture, and a genuine visionary, Philip K. Dick wrote about reality, entropy, deception, and the plight of being alive in the modern world. Through his remarkable career Dick has established himself as a writer of the first order and his dreams of the future have proven to be eerily prophetic and even more prescient than when he wrote them.

Vintage PKD features extracts from The Man in the High Castle, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, Ubik, A Scanner Darkly, VALIS, and stories including “The Days of Perky Pat,” “A Little Something for Us Tempunauts," and “I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon,” along with essays and letters currently unavailable in book form.

 

Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the great modern writers, presented in attractive, affordable paperback editions.

Review:

"Prolific science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick's novels and short stories have inspired films like Blade Runner and Minority Report. Excerpts from seminal novels A Scanner Darkly, Ubik, The Man in the High Castle and others, and complete stories including 'The Days of Perky Pat' are collected with a selection of his essays and letters in this wide-ranging haute sci-fi taster's menu." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Dick died in 1982.
