1928-1982

Philip Kindred Dick was an American science fiction writer known for his fast-paced prose and foreshadowing of the cyperpunk era. His stories often incoporate themes of authoritarian government, drug use, or religion and spirituality. Dick is now more well-known for his short stories than his novels. Despite spending most of his career with little financial success, nine of his short stories have been adapted into major films, including Bladerunner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep), Total Recall (based on We Can Remember It For You Wholesale), Minority Report, Paycheck, A Scanner Darkly, and Next (based on The Golden Man).

QUOTES:

"Science has given us more lives than it has taken; we must remember that."

"The trouble with being educated is that it takes a long time; it uses up the better part of your life and when you are finished what you know is that you would have benefited more by going into banking."
