Philip K. Dick Kick

Philip K. Dick Kick

I’ve been on a Philip K. Dick kick lately, reading short stories. But of course, nothing compares to *Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? *I finally read that book. What’s amazing is that it was written in 1968 and provides some pretty awesome science-fiction. If you’re not familiar with the story, it is the book that was later made into the movie *Blade Runner, *one of the greatest science-fiction movies ever made.

Many of Dick’s books were made into movies, including:

We’ll remember that for you wholesale – Total Recall
Minority Report – Minority Report
A Scanner Darkly – A Scanner Darkly

And I’m sure there are more that I’m unaware of.

Anyway, pick up some books by Dick and give them a read if you like science fiction.
