Why Do A Survey of Works by PKD?

PKD is a well known classic speculative fiction writer who penned 36 novels and five short story collections between 1952 and 1982. Thirty some odd years after PKD’s death, his works are thriving with new generations of readers, books in print in multiple languages, and several works adapted to the screen, to include Bladerunner, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly, Total Recall, The Adjustment Bureau, The Man in the High Castle, and recently, Amazon Prime’s Electric Dreams.

I’m intrigued by PKD’s hybrid of futurism, personal cosmic visions, and his philosophical explorations into the nature of “reality.”

I invite you to join me on a tour of PKD books, movies, strange thoughts and amazing fandom!

Read the following articles in order of writing, or out of order. But know this: each article, filled with interesting links and facts, will take you deeper into the rabbit hole of PKD thought and fandom!
