Over a writing career that spanned three decades, Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) published 36 science fiction novels and 121 short stories in which he explored the essence of what makes man human and the dangers of centralized power. Toward the end of his life, his work turned toward deeply personal, metaphysical questions concerning the nature of God. Eleven novels and short stories have been adapted to film; notably: Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly. The recipient of critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout his career, Dick was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2005, and in 2007 the Library of America published a selection of his novels in three volumes. His work has been translated into more than twenty-five languages.
JONATHAN LETHEM is the author of nine novels, including Motherless Brooklyn, The Fortress of Solitude, and Gun, with Occasional Music. Dissident Gardens is his most recent novel.

I'm a big fan of PKD, and have read about thirty of his novels, but I found this to be kind of a slog. I knew what I was getting into, but I didn't know it would be so repetitive. Read morePublished 6 months ago by w james

Tough stuff, only for the PKD initiate. Took me 3 month to get thru the entire audiobook. But probably have to listen to it again (and again) to grasp it to some level at least. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Gunnar Kossatz
