Summary The Selected Letters of Philip K. Dick, 1980-82 (Dick's Letters) ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Philip K Dick ô 5 Summary In this sixth entry in the series of Dick's letters the great sci fi author continues his metaphysical and religious uest initiated by the Valis visions of 1974 In thes I found reading these letters and I haven t read any of the earlier volumes at times tedious at times revealing at times surprising and at times humanisingTo me Philip Dick has been something of an icon from when I first started reading him in the 1970s initially through the short stories for one of the less well known that I admire so much consider If there were no Benny Cemoli which you can find in The Preserving Machine amongst other places The first of the novels that I read was The Man in the High Castle and although I don t see it as really typical PKD it s little surprise I hungrily read them all as they became available even the ones PKD in these letters disparaged such at Puttering around in a Small Land Hollywood producers could learn a lot here One of my favourite PKD novels not critically admired but I think worth a fresh look is The Penultimate Truth And of course I have absorbed all the extras I can find the Exegesis extracts the essays and introductions the biographies the film adaptationsI did find these letters increasingly emotional to read when I skimmed the endless speculations on the nature of reality the structure of the Universe What he didn t know but what I did know is that these were some of his last writings he didn t know the end was so nearBecause PKD was such a diligent researcher and explorer he introduced me to many concepts including the concept of empathy One day I picked up a novel in a bookshop by Rabindranath Tagore and it seemed to me that this was someone PKD may have used partly as a model for a character in one of his novels my interest was immediately stimulated and started a love of Tagore s writing But I was mistaken The character PKD had wriiten and I had confused with Tagore was Mr Tagomi in The Man in the High Castle How surprised was I when I read in his letters that late in his life PKD had a revelation of a Christ like figure dying at the time in Sri Lanka a saint called Tagore PKD probably did know of Rabrindranath Tagore but there is no apparent connection with the revelation of the saint in Sri LankaI was dismayed to read of the bullying PKD got from his publishers late in his life even though by then he was a demonstrably successful writer In reading a biography of Joseph Conrad I read of the same stress that Conrad had experienced I m sure this pressure does at times compromise a writer s output Conrad rewrote the second half of The Secret Agent after a rushed first writing to satisfy the publisher I think it shows so clearlyBut perhaps the most surprising aspect of these letters is PKD s repeated complaint that he was hopeless at dreaming up titles for his novels short stories For me a title such as Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep or The Man whose Teeth were all Exactly Alike are such seminal PKD titles They totally capture the author s humour with its dark but never blue side If PKD didn t write these who didThe only negative I have about these letters is that they are rather like overhearing a mobile phone conversation a half a logue I would have loved to read some of the responses PKD got including from the CIA and from Ronald Reagan L'Atlas des stars d'Hollywood : Les acteurs de l'âge d'or you can find in The Preserving Machine amongst other places The first of the novels that I read was The Man in the
