The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages.

All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war—and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

This harrowing, Hugo Award—winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas.

In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to wake. A Scanner Darkly Oct 18, Ubik Apr 17, As consumables deteriorate and technology gets ever more primitive, the group needs to find out what is causing the shifts and what a mysterious product called Ubik has to do with it all.

Dick Apr 16, Dick , Jonathan Lethem. Other Formats: Hardcover. The Cosmic Puppets Jul 17, The VALIS Trilogy Dec 1, This e-book only edition brings together the three novels of Philip K.

Dick's VALIS trilogy. And it is on this planet that God meets Herb Asher and convinces him to help retake Earth from the demonic Belial.

As the middlie novel of Dick's VALIS trilogy, The Divine Invasion plays a pivotal role in answering the questions raised by the first novel, expanding that world while exploring just how much anyone can really know -- even God himself.

The world turns out to be inhabited by a race of less advanced people. The future president, who would become the first black man to take the office, can win the election if he advocates taking the land by force.

The commentary on colonialism is fascinating, as are the racial politics, though Dick's portrayal of the native inhabitants leaves something to be desired.

This trippy Dick novel is a cult favorite, having to do with the idea of an addictive drug that appears to induce time travel. It is one of Dick's craziest novels, but it doesn't go off the rails like many of the books he cranked out have a tendency to do.

It's a good look at Dick's themes of drugs, addiction, paranoia, and insanity. This book is one of Dick's most famous, because the film Blade Runner is adapted from it.

It is common to hear people say they prefer the film, but the movie version tones down many of the books most compelling themes.

When animals become almost extinct, and intelligent androids provide free labor, the human race shifts its ideas about what it means to be human.

Dick asks this question in a provocative way, and explores his usual theme of authenticity. If I have to choose one Dick novel as the "quintessential" Dick work then I have to go with Ubik.

It has alternate realities, seeming time travel, philosophy, religion, and enough trippy ideas to keep you guessing what is real and what isn't.

In fact, this is the Dick novel that will make you most feel as if you are on a mind altering drug. That is the biggest compliment I can give it. I hesitate to say anything about the plot, except that it involves a spray product that might be the key to understanding the universe.

If you imagine a sci-fi version of Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians" you will get an idea of what this book is like.

A rag tag group of people end up on a deserted planet and start getting killed off one at a time. This book is tightly constructed for a Dick novel, sticking mostly to the plot, but there is a lot of hilarious satire and religious ideas thrown around to keep things interesting.

The ending of this Dick work is polarizing, but I think it works just fine. Other people accuse it of being lazy writing.

Upon relocating to Orange County, California at the behest of California State University, Fullerton professor Willis McNelly who initiated a correspondence with Dick during his X-Kalay stint , he donated manuscripts , papers and other materials to the University's Special Collections Library, where they are archived in the Philip K.

Dick Science Fiction Collection in the Pollak Library. During this period, Dick befriended a circle of Fullerton State students that encompassed several aspiring science fiction writers, including K.

Jeter , James Blaylock and Tim Powers. Jeter would later go on to continue Dick's Bladerunner series with three sequels. Dick returned to the events of these months while writing his novel A Scanner Darkly , [25] which contains fictionalized depictions of the burglary of his home, his time using amphetamines and living with addicts, and his experiences of X-Kalay portrayed in the novel as "New-Path".

A factual account of Dick's recovery program participation was portrayed in his posthumously released book The Dark Haired Girl , a collection of letters and journals from the period.

On February 20, , while recovering from the effects of sodium pentothal administered for the extraction of an impacted wisdom tooth , Dick received a home delivery of Darvon from a young woman.

When he opened the door, he was struck by the beauty of the dark-haired girl and was especially drawn to her golden necklace.

He asked her about its curious fish-shaped design. Dick called the symbol the "vesicle pisces". This name seems to have been based on his conflation of two related symbols, the Christian ichthys symbol two intersecting arcs delineating a fish in profile which the woman was wearing, and the vesica piscis.

Dick recounted that as the sun glinted off the gold pendant, the reflection caused the generation of a "pink beam" of light that mesmerized him.

He came to believe the beam imparted wisdom and clairvoyance, and also believed it to be intelligent. On one occasion, Dick was startled by a separate recurrence of the pink beam.

It imparted the information to him that his infant son was ill. The Dicks rushed the child to the hospital, where his suspicion was confirmed by professional diagnosis.

After the woman's departure, Dick began experiencing strange hallucinations. Although initially attributing them to side effects from medication, he considered this explanation implausible after weeks of continued hallucinations.

Throughout February and March , Dick experienced a series of hallucinations, which he referred to as "", [21] shorthand for February—March Aside from the "pink beam", Dick described the initial hallucinations as geometric patterns, and, occasionally, brief pictures of Jesus and ancient Rome.

As the hallucinations increased in duration and frequency, Dick claimed he began to live two parallel lives, one as himself, "Philip K.

Dick", and one as "Thomas", [29] a Christian persecuted by Romans in the first century AD. He referred to the "transcendentally rational mind" as "Zebra", "God" and " VALIS " an acronym for Vast Active Living Intelligence System.

Dick wrote about the experiences, first in the semi-autobiographical novel Radio Free Albemuth and then in VALIS , The Divine Invasion , "The Transmigration of Timothy Archer" and the unfinished The Owl in Daylight the VALIS trilogy.

In , Dick wrote a letter to the FBI , accusing various people, including University of California, San Diego professor Fredric Jameson , of being foreign agents of Warsaw Pact powers.

At one point, Dick felt that he had been taken over by the spirit of the prophet Elijah. He believed that an episode in his novel Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said was a detailed retelling of a biblical story from the Book of Acts , which he had never read.

The last novel Dick wrote was The Transmigration of Timothy Archer ; it was published shortly after his death in Dick had three children, Laura Archer Dick [33] born February 25, to Dick and his third wife, Anne Williams Rubenstein , Isolde Freya Dick [34] now Isa Dick Hackett born March 15, to Dick and his fourth wife, Nancy Hackett , and Christopher Kenneth Dick born July 25, to Dick and his fifth wife, Leslie "Tessa" Busby.

In , he and his second wife, Kleo Apostolides, received a visit from the FBI , which they believed to be the result of Kleo's socialist views and left-wing activities.

The couple briefly befriended one of the FBI agents. He was physically abusive with his third wife, Anne Williams Rubinstein; after one argument in , he attempted to push her off a cliff in a car, then later claimed she was trying to kill him, [36] and convinced a psychiatrist to commit her involuntarily.

After filing for divorce in , he moved to Oakland to live with a fan, author and editor Grania Davis.

Shortly after, he attempted suicide by driving off the road while she was a passenger. Dick tried to stay out of the political scene because of high societal turmoil from the Vietnam War.

Still, he did show some anti-Vietnam War and anti-governmental sentiments. In , he joined the " Writers and Editors War Tax Protest ", [17] [38] an anti-war pledge to pay no U.

On February 17, , after completing an interview, Dick contacted his therapist, complaining of failing eyesight, and was advised to go to a hospital immediately, but did not.

The following day, he was found unconscious on the floor of his Santa Ana, California home, having suffered a stroke.

On February 25, Dick suffered another stroke in the hospital, which led to brain death. Five days later, on March 2, he was disconnected from life support and died.

After his death, Dick's father, Joseph, took his son's ashes to Riverside Cemetery in Fort Morgan, Colorado , section K, block 1, lot 56 , where they were buried next to his twin sister Jane, who died in infancy.

Her tombstone had been inscribed with both of their names at the time of her death, 53 years earlier. Dick's stories typically focus on the fragile nature of what is real and the construction of personal identity.

His stories often become surreal fantasies, as the main characters slowly discover that their everyday world is actually an illusion assembled by powerful external entities, such as the suspended animation in Ubik , [41] vast political conspiracies or the vicissitudes of an unreliable narrator.

The ground is liable to shift under your feet. A protagonist may find himself living out another person's dream, or he may enter a drug-induced state that actually makes better sense than the real world, or he may cross into a different universe completely.

Alternate universes and simulacra are common plot devices , with fictional worlds inhabited by common, working people, rather than galactic elites.

Le Guin wrote, "but there are heroics. One is reminded of Dickens : what counts is the honesty, constancy, kindness and patience of ordinary people.

Dick identified one major theme of his work as the question, "What constitutes the authentic human being? Mental illness was a constant interest of Dick's, and themes of mental illness permeate his work.

The character Jack Bohlen in the novel Martian Time-Slip is an "ex-schizophrenic". The novel Clans of the Alphane Moon centers on an entire society made up of descendants of lunatic asylum inmates.

In , he wrote the essay titled "Schizophrenia and the Book of Changes". Drug use including religious , recreational , and abuse was also a theme in many of Dick's works, such as A Scanner Darkly and The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch.

Dick himself was a drug user for much of his life. According to a interview in Rolling Stone , [46] Dick wrote all of his books published before while on amphetamines.

He also experimented briefly with psychedelics , but wrote The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch , which Rolling Stone dubs "the classic LSD novel of all time", before he had ever tried them.

Despite his heavy amphetamine use, however, Dick later said that doctors told him the amphetamines never actually affected him, that his liver had processed them before they reached his brain.

Summing up all these themes in Understanding Philip K. Dick , Eric Carl Link discussed eight themes or 'ideas and motifs': [47] Epistemology and the Nature of Reality, Know Thyself, The Android and the Human, Entropy and Pot Healing, The Theodicy Problem, Warfare and Power Politics, The Evolved Human, and 'Technology, Media, Drugs and Madness'.

Dick had two professional stories published under the pen names Richard Phillipps and Jack Dowland. The short story " Orpheus with Clay Feet " was published under the pen name Jack Dowland.

The protagonist desires to be the muse for fictional author Jack Dowland, considered the greatest science fiction author of the 20th century.

In the story, Dowland publishes a short story titled "Orpheus with Clay Feet" under the pen name Philip K. The surname Dowland refers to Renaissance composer John Dowland , who is featured in several works.

The title Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said directly refers to Dowland's best-known composition, " Flow, my tears ". In the novel The Divine Invasion , the character Linda Fox, created specifically with Linda Ronstadt in mind, is an intergalactically famous singer whose entire body of work consists of recordings of John Dowland compositions.

The Man in the High Castle is set in an alternate history in which the United States is ruled by the victorious Axis powers.

It is the only Dick novel to win a Hugo Award. In this was adapted into a television series by Amazon Studios. The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch utilizes an array of science fiction concepts and features several layers of reality and unreality.

It is also one of Dick's first works to explore religious themes. The novel takes place in the 21st century, when, under UN authority, mankind has colonized the Solar System 's every habitable planet and moon.

Life is physically daunting and psychologically monotonous for most colonists, so the UN must draft people to go to the colonies.

Most entertain themselves using "Perky Pat" dolls and accessories manufactured by Earth-based "P. The company also secretly creates "Can-D", an illegal but widely available hallucinogenic drug allowing the user to "translate" into Perky Pat if the drug user is a woman or Pat's boyfriend, Walt if the drug user is a man.

This recreational use of Can-D allows colonists to experience a few minutes of an idealized life on Earth by participating in a collective hallucination.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? It occurs on a dying, poisoned Earth de-populated of almost all animals and all "successful" humans; the only remaining inhabitants of the planet are people with no prospects off-world.

The novel is the literary source of the film Blade Runner What crucial factor defines humanity as distinctly "alive", versus those merely alive only in their outward appearance?

Ubik employs extensive psychic telepathy and a suspended state after death in creating a state of eroding reality.

A group of psychics is sent to investigate a rival organisation, but several of them are apparently killed by a saboteur's bomb. Much of the following novel flicks between different equally plausible realities and the "real" reality, a state of half-life and psychically manipulated realities.

In , Time magazine listed it among the "All-TIME Greatest Novels" published since Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said concerns Jason Taverner, a television star living in a dystopian near-future police state.

After being attacked by an angry ex-girlfriend, Taverner awakens in a dingy Los Angeles hotel room. He still has his money in his wallet, but his identification cards are missing.

This is no minor inconvenience, as security checkpoints manned by "pols" and "nats", the police and National Guard are set up throughout the city to stop and arrest anyone without valid ID.

Jason at first thinks that he was robbed, but soon discovers that his entire identity has been erased.

There is no record of him in any official database, and even his closest associates do not recognize or remember him.

For the first time in many years, Jason has no fame or reputation to rely on. He has only his innate charm and social graces to help him as he tries to find out what happened to his past while avoiding the attention of the pols.

The novel was Dick's first published novel after years of silence, during which time his critical reputation had grown, and this novel was awarded the John W.

Dick novel nominated for both a Hugo and a Nebula Award. In an essay written two years before his death, Dick described how he learned from his Episcopal priest that an important scene in Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said — involving its other main character, the eponymous Police General Felix Buckman, was very similar to a scene in Acts of the Apostles , [32] a book of the New Testament.

Film director Richard Linklater discusses this novel in his film Waking Life , which begins with a scene reminiscent of another Dick novel, Time Out of Joint.

A Scanner Darkly is a bleak mixture of science fiction and police procedural novels; in its story, an undercover narcotics police detective begins to lose touch with reality after falling victim to Substance D, the same permanently mind-altering drug he was enlisted to help fight.

Substance D is instantly addictive, beginning with a pleasant euphoria which is quickly replaced with increasing confusion, hallucinations and eventually total psychosis.

In this novel, as with all Dick novels, there is an underlying thread of paranoia and dissociation with multiple realities perceived simultaneously.

It was adapted to film by Richard Linklater. The Philip K. Dick Reader [51] is an introduction to the variety of Dick's short fiction.

VALIS is perhaps Dick's most postmodern and autobiographical novel, examining his own unexplained experiences.

It may also be his most academically studied work, and was adapted as an opera by Tod Machover. The word VALIS is the acronym for Vast Active Living Intelligence System.

Later, Dick theorized that VALIS was both a "reality generator" and a means of extraterrestrial communication.

A fourth VALIS manuscript, Radio Free Albemuth , although composed in , was posthumously published in This work is described by the publisher Arbor House as "an introduction and key to his magnificent VALIS trilogy".

Regardless of the feeling that he was somehow experiencing a divine communication, Dick was never fully able to rationalize the events.

For the rest of his life, he struggled to comprehend what was occurring, questioning his own sanity and perception of reality.

He transcribed what thoughts he could into an eight-thousand-page, one-million-word journal dubbed the Exegesis. From until his death in , Dick spent many nights writing in this journal.

A recurring theme in Exegesis is Dick's hypothesis that history had been stopped in the first century AD, and that "the Empire never ended".

He saw Rome as the pinnacle of materialism and despotism , which, after forcing the Gnostics underground, had kept the population of Earth enslaved to worldly possessions.

Dick believed that VALIS had communicated with him, and anonymously others, to induce the impeachment of U.

President Richard Nixon , whom Dick believed to be the current Emperor of Rome incarnate. In a essay titled "Self Portrait", collected in the book The Shifting Realities of Philip K.

Dick , Dick reflects on his work and lists which books he feels "might escape World War Three": Eye in the Sky , The Man in the High Castle , Martian Time-Slip , Dr.

Bloodmoney, or How We Got Along After the Bomb , The Zap Gun , The Penultimate Truth , The Simulacra , The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch which he refers to as "the most vital of them all" , Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
