The Philip K. Dick Movie Report Card The Philip K. Dick Movie Report Card Friday will see the release of a new Total Recall, which aims to erase our memories of another movie called Total Recall.

The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch by Philip K. Dick (1965): Before there was virtual reality, Philip K. Dick spent a lot of time mulling over virtual reality in a wide variety of ways, from the machine-produced to the religiously derived concept of Maya, the physical world of illusion. Dick himself noted on more than one occasion that the two main concerns of his vast body of work seemed to be 'What is reality?' and 'What is a human being?' Levels of the Tomb-World
Bummed Out And Ugly Via Philippe HUPP/Gamma-Rapho via Getty Images The great thing about the library was that nothing too fucked up could happen there. Untold multitudes of librarians and patrons would disagree with me, but I’m only speaking for myself. Even when I went to the library with my father, things were relatively chill between us, and would remain that way until we left. It was a building decorated in every shade of brown the ’70s had on offer. We walked to the back of the library, past the magazine racks, to the reference materials and the study tables.
Mining the Genre Asteroid is Paul Weimer’s look at the history of the science fiction and fantasy field, bringing to light important, interesting and entertaining books from science fiction and fantasy’s past to you. A seemingly ordinary 1950’s slice of Suburbia. Ragle Gumm spends his days working on the “Where will the Little Man be Next” puzzle for the local paper. As the reigning champion of solving the daily puzzle, it is practically a full time job for him. But, then, when a soft drink stand disappears before Ragle’s eyes, to have a piece of paper with the words “soft drink stand” fall to the ground, things are clearly not what they appear.

Riding Hood After7 Fairy Tale Pastiches - part 1 This is the first in a series of 7 pastiches of famous authors, not purely for my own benefit although clearly I enjoyed writing them enormously. No, there is a serious purpose. Not only will I write you seven versions of the Red Riding Hood story, but I will add commentaries at the end to tell you how they were made and what decisions I made to write the text as much like the original author as possible. There is a reson this is a good thing.

Philip K. Dick was many things: drug fiend, holy fool, seeker, genius, and visionary. Literally. philip k. dick | Shakespeare's Tremor and Orwell's Cough
The key to understanding the universe in Ubik is in the repeated references to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, which acts as the primary text to understand the concept of half-life in the story. The book is based mainly on the idea of intermediate stages in existence, all central to the Buddhist concept of life, death, and transcendence. These beliefs become valuable to the people in the future Dick envisions, who have engineered a very literal intermediate stage between life and death. But the ideas found in the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and related beliefs, extend far beyond this one concept in Ubik, but are present in almost every facet of it. The world is presented as a series of intermediate stages in existence, where life and physicality, death and the mind, intermingle and change state constantly. Philip K. Dick, “Ubik” (1969, 2012) | The New Paragraphy

I Understand Philip K. Dick While reading bits of The Exegesis of Philip K Dick, I realized just how tapped in PKD’s mind was with the coincidental ether, and how this relates with other topics posted recently on this site. Namely Opti and I, by Opticuswrangler, and my article Plant/human symbiosis and the fall of humanity – A talk with Tony Wright, which places a biochemical basis for our disconnected and left-brained state of consciousness, psychedelics, and diet into an evolutionary context. Phil had extracted gems for years out of the mercurial mists of the minds imagination, and shared them with us all in his novels; some of which have made their way onto the big screen.
Total Dick-Head: Umberto Rossi Recalls His Festival Experience Words and pictures by Umberto Rossi: Let me tell you all that my notions about the geography of the Bay Area were awfully foggy. I didn't even know that SFSU and Berkeley were two quite different places. However, while I was waiting for rescue (a bold team made up by Ted Hand and Dave Gill) I took a picture of this street sign because it sounded distinctly Dickian.
