The Ultimate Masterwork from Philip K. Dick is Now Available

The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick by Philip Dick
The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick by Philip Dick

Philip K. Dick was a brilliant author whose novels delved deep into topics such as political and corporate control, pure science, and the true nature of identity and the perception of reality. Much of his work is classified as science fiction, but it is unfair to believe that simply because the genre holds no appeal for you that you will fail to enjoy the final and ultimate work by this progressive and remarkable author. The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick was the last piece by this late genius. The book is a collection of notes, journal entries, letters, and sketches that deal with Dick’s religious visions and his experiences with faith. The work, which was compiled and introduced by editors Pamela Jackson and Jonathan Lethem, serves as a powerful reminder of Dick’s incredible mind and helps to enlighten readers with its peculiar but broad scope. Many of Dick’s novels and short stories have been adapted to film (Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly, Minority Report), but the potency of his writing is something to behold. Although he passed away a few decades ago, his writing is still very much relevant, and there are some who consider Dick a sort of precursor to post-modernism.

The Exegesis is perfect for any reader of science fiction (and it is likely that true science fiction fanatics are already familiar with Dick’s novels), but do not limit yourself. This ultimate work would also be much appreciated by any reader who enjoys intelligent work that explores topics such as religion and faith, the potential for a truly objective reality, and what it means to have an identity in this strange and sometimes unbelievable world. Dick’s writing is lucid and sometimes surreal. It will likely be appreciated by any reader who happens to stumble upon its brilliance. Do not miss The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick by Philip Dick.
