Description

In the field of science fiction, the work of Philip K. Dick is unparalleled. Through books like Valis and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (later filmed by Ridley Scott as Blade Runner) his appeal and influence has reached the world over, creating the standard For the literary science fiction novel.In November of 1982, six months before thc author's death, journalist Gwen Lee recorded the first of several indepth discussions with Philip K. Dick. The subjects touched upon included the specifics of his writing process, his enthusiastic response to the scenes and trailers he'd seen of Blade Runner (he never lived to see the finished film), and accounts of his religious experiences. But the greatest amount of time was devoted to discussions of his next novel. Owl in Daylight, a book he would never get the chance to write. A tale steeped in mysticism, biotechnology, and the relationship between music and language, it was to be his masterpiece.These extraordinary interviews are filled with the wit and aplomb characteristic of Dick's writing, helping make What If Our World Is Their Heaven? not only an engaging read, but a unique and compelling historical document. It will be a must read for anyone interested in the field of science fiction.show more
