PKD Over Coffee

Philip K Dick was a very interesting writer. You’ve probably seen more stuff of his than you’ve read. He was great science fiction writer of the 60’s and 70’s and is the only science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America series. 635 more words

What can I say about Ubik?

GO READ THIS BOOK. NOW.

Drop what you’re doing. It’s a quick read. Take a few hours to cruise through the pages and appreciate your life just a little bit more because you’ve enlightened your reading history with this gloriousness. 678 more words

Essential Reading: August 2015
