Description

The Philip K. Dick Android looked eerily like the iconic science fiction guru. He "watched" people as they approached, "heard" their voices, answered their questions in Dick's own words. Then, on the way to Google, his head went missing. In a story that could have been lifted from one of Dick's celebrated novels, which have been made into such films as Blade Runner, David Dufty brings to light the incredible but true events - exploring the science of robotic "resurrection" and the coming android future.
