In the field of science fiction, the work of Philip K. Dick is unparalleled. His work formed the basis for the films "Blade Runner", "The Minority Report" and "Total Recall". The movie version of his masterpiece, "A Scanner Darkly", is scheduled for release in the summer of 2006. Dick's appeal and influence have reached the world over, creating the standard for the literary science fiction novel. In November 1982, six months before the author's death, journalist Gwen Lee recorded the first of several in-depth discussions with Philip K. Dick that continued over the course of the next three months. These extraordinary interviews are filled with the wit and aplomb characteristic of Dick's writing. It will be a must read for anyone interested in Dick's headlong pursuit of the truth and in the secret history of our times.
"'Anyone who has been drawn into the paranoid, hallucinatory premises of Dick's fiction... will enjoy spending time with one of science fiction's most unconventional minds' Gerald Jonas, The New York Times"
