WE CAN BUILD YOU.

By: (DICK, PHILIP K.)

Price: $50.00

Publisher: London, Severn House: 1988

Edition: [First British Hardcover}

Seller ID: 823


Dick's 3rd novel from his SF Decade where he must've been writing 'round the clock! Phil dedicated this book to Robert Heinlein - "To Robert & Ginny Heinlein, whose kindness to us meant more than ordinary words can answer." Phil was so broke, he and his wife were eating dog food - horsemeat; Heinlein somehow found out and sent him $100 and never asked to be repaid. "Say what you want about Robert Heinlein, but he was a hero to me" - Philip K. Dick in conversation. View more info

An SF novel from the middle his most productive decade - the 1960's. In typical Dick fashion, middle to lower middle class worker discovers a paralell universe. Blue collar workers were often heroes in his fictions; he always identified with the common man. The paper lightly toned - an unavoidable annoyance of these cheap British editions. View more info

A collection of fifteen, PKD short stories devoted to the question he posed often: What is human? What is machine? What is the difference?

By: (DICK, PHILIP K.) Gregg Rickman

Price: $45.00

Edition: [First edition}

The companion volume to the author's first book on PKD - "PHILIP K. DICK: IN HIS OWN WORDS," although this book focusses primarily on Phil's "visions" & philosophy and especially his VALIS experiences. PKD was a very sensitive, caring individual, more considerate of others than himself and these human qualities come through most accurately in his own words in Rickman's books. Wraps. Near fine copy.

Unearthed from the cache of manuscripts PKD had deposited at in Special Collections at the Fullerton University library, PAIASL is considered one of his best mainstream novels although after it's original completion Scott Meredith Agency had little enthusiasm - "Usual serious Dick novel, less murky than others but overlong, confused… is basically ironic comedy, but overwritten, distasteful." The late Paul Williams was more accurate with his appraisal - 'Publication of ... View more info

The eleventh of PKD's mainstream novels—yeah, I know, who knew he wrote so many! —"Out of all my mainstream novels, my one gem: The Man Whose Teeth Were exactly Alike, is economically written, rather tender and yet in places funny . . . it reads like a fusion of Nathaniel West and F.

One of the few screenplays PKD wrote based upon perhaps his most bizarre novel—UBIK—an interesting takeoff on the Dead who are not Dead. PKD's version of the Zombie theme. It's a faster read in screenplay form, differing slightly from the novel and the book is illustrated with tip-in color illustrations of the UBIK spraycan. This copy is SIGNED by Tim Powers, friend to PKD who wrote the introduction. Nice production. Fine in d.j. [1250 copies produced, only] View more info
