To many, Philip K. Dick was possibly the greatest writer to come out of the second half of the 20th century.

He wrote 29 novels and over a hundred short stories, many of which were & continue to be adapted to movies, TV series & other media: BLADE RUNNER, THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE, A SCANNER DARKLY, MINORITY REPORT, TOTAL RECALL among many others. His work to this day also resonates & inspires current adaptations of non-PKD adaptations with what is now referred to as having a "Dickian" influence: Black Mirror, Counterpart, Maniac (2018), Russian Doll (2019),The O A, Altered Carbon, Brazil (1985), The Matrix (1999), Ghost in the Shell, Strange Days (1995), Johnny Mnemonic (1995), Gattaca (1997), Split Second (1992), Dark City (1998), Ex Machina (2014), Hardware (1990), Looper (2012), and even to A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) & Ready Player One (2018).

He, like many other artists, lived in poverty for most of his life and was recognized only by a small following, however after his death he has continued to gain notoriety and is, in certain circles, seen as a sort of messiah for the modern age in his unique vision of the changing world.
