The SF Masterworks series has now sold 600,000 copies. Philip K. Dick is one of the most influential figures of 20th century SF. His stories have been the basis for some of Hollywood's biggest movies: BLADE RUNNER, TOTAL RECALL and MINORITY REPORT. The very best of the SF genre in a uniform edition 'One of the most original practitioners writing any kind of fiction, Dick made most of the European avant-garde seem like navel-gazers in a cul-de-sac' Sunday Times 'Dick has chosen to handle material too nutty to accept, too admonitory to forget, too haunting to abandon' Washington Post
Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was born in Chicago but lived in California for most of his life. He went to college at Berkeley for a year, ran a record store and had his own classical-music show on a local radio station. He published his first short story, 'Beyond Lies the Wub' in 1952. Among his many fine novels are The Man in the High Castle, Time Out of Joint, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said.
