Closeout Price! Highly Recommended. By Joseph Conrad. Adapted by Peter Kuper.

Bargain Price! Ten stories that inspired a BBC television series, each with an introduction by the BBC adapters. Recommended. Though perhaps most famous as a novelist, Philip K. Dick wrote more than one hundred short stories over the course of his career, each as mind-bending and genre-defining as his longer works. Here are ten of the best. In "Autofac," Dick shows us one of the earliest examples (and warnings) in science fiction of self-replicating machines. "Exhibit Piece" and "The Commuter" feature Dick exploring one of his favorite themes: the shifting nature of reality and whether it is even possible to perceive the world as it truly exists. And "The Hanging Stranger" provides a thrilling, dark political allegory as relevant today as it was when Dick wrote it at the height of the Cold War Gollancz, 2017. ...More.

Item Code: PHED01
Soft Cover, 5x8, 224pg, Text Only

Closeout Price! Recommended. A haunting and very complex graphic novel, one of Philip K. Dick’s most popular and best-selling novels.

What Fred doesn’t know is that Substance D gradually splits the user’s brain into two distinct, combative entities, and that he is, in fact, in frantic pursuit of himself. "...caustically funny and razor sharp in its depiction of drug-induced paranoia and madness." Pantheon, 2006....More.

Closeout Price! Publisher file copy. Wrap-around dust jacket art by Ilene Meyer. In this sixth entry in the series of Dick’s letters, the great sci-fi author continues his metaphysical and religious quest initiated by the Valis visions of 1974. In these letters to friends, fans, agents, and other sci-fi writers, Dick speculates on the visionary and archetypal material that intruded into his novels in the latter part of his life, which marked a turning point in his literary career. These intensely personal letters express Dick's deepest thoughts on science fiction, human nature, philosophy, and more. Underwood Books, 2009. Out of print. ...More.
