Philip K. Dick is considered by many to be one the world's greatest science fiction writers ever; as a sufferer from mental illness himself he had the ability to turn his hallucinations about the universe into an extraordinary writing career.
During his lifetime, Dick produced an astonishing amount of prize winning novels and short stories, which were translated into more than 25 languages. His books inspired iconic movies that generated more than a billion dollars worldwide. Three of his literary works were transformed into blockbuster movies: Blade Runner, Minority Report and Total Recall.
