Second Variety and Other Classic Stories

Dick, Philip K./ Tiptree, James, Jr. (INT)

Includes “The Golden Man,” the basis for the motion picture Next

“The collected stories of Philip K. Dick are awe inspiring.” —The Washington Post

Many thousands of readers worldwide consider Philip K. Dick to have been the greatest science fiction writer on any planet. Since his untimely death in 1982, interest in Dick’s work has continued to mount and his reputation has been enhanced by a growing body of critical attention. The Philip K. Dick Award is now presented annually to a distinguished work of science fiction, and the Philip K. Dick Society is devoted to the study and promulgation of his works.

This collection draws from the writer’s earliest short and medium-length fiction (including several previously unpublished stories) during the years 1952-1955, and features such fascinating works as Second Variety, Foster, You’re Dead, The Father-Thing, and many others. Here, readers will find Dick’s initial explorations of the themes he so brilliantly brought to life in his later work.

Dick won the prestigious Hugo Award for best novel of 1963 for The Man in the High Castle and in the last year of his life, the now-classic film Blade Runner was made from his novel Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep? More recently, Dick’s short story The Minority Report inspired a Steven Spielberg movie as well as a TV series.

The classic stories of Philip K. Dick offer an intriguing glimpse into the early imagination of one of science fiction’s most enduring and respected names.

“A useful acquisition for any serious SF library or collection.” —Kirkus Reviews

“More than anyone else in the field, Mr. Dick really puts you inside people’s minds.”
—Wall Street Journal

作者簡介

Dick, Philip K./ Tiptree, James, Jr. (INT)

Over a writing career that spanned three decades, Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) published 36 science fiction novels and 121 short stories in which he explored the essence of what makes man human and the dangers of centralized power. Toward the end of his life, his work turned toward deeply personal, metaphysical questions concerning the nature of God. Eleven novels and short stories have been adapted to film; notably: Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly. The recipient of critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout his career, Dick was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2005, and in 2007 the Library of America published a selection of his novels in three volumes. His work has been translated into more than twenty-five languages.
