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

A CRACK IN SPACE

By: (DICK, PHILIP K.)

Price: $50.00

Publisher: Wallington, UK, Severn House: 1989

Edition: [First British Hardcover}

Seller ID: 828


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?

An unread copy in d.j., still shrinkwrapped. View more info

PHILIP K. DICK: THE LAST TESTAMENT

By: (DICK, PHILIP K.) Gregg Rickman

Price: $45.00

Publisher: Long Beach, California, Fragments West/The Valentine press: 1985

Edition: [First edition}

Seller ID: 822


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.

Publisher: Boston, Unearth Publications: 1977

Edition: First

Seller ID: 138


Harlan Ellison was listed on the masthead as "Contributing Editor," which is probably what helped launch the digest-sized magazine. UNEARTH was established to provide a market for "writers who had not het made a sale." They also published established authors "First sales" as examples of where these writers had started. A clever marketing niche, I thought. This #1 issue features Harlan Ellison's first published story—"GLOWWORM." The magazine was roughtly cut upon pub... View more info

I have always maintained that after HPL, the most important/influential author published by Arkham House was Ray Bradbury: Bradbury was the founding father of the California Writer revolution of the 1950's-60's, influencing those who intentionally broke away from the HPL and more Gothic tradition of horror; Charles Beaumont, George Clayton Johnson, William F. Nolan, Dennis Etchison, Harlan Ellison, and others who brought horror "into the light." DARK CARNIVAL collects ... View more info
