In the novel The Divine Invasion , the character Linda Fox, created specifically with Linda Ronstadt in mind, is an intergalactically famous singer whose entire body of work consists of recordings of John Dowland compositions.
The Man in the High Castle is set in an alternate history in which the United States is ruled by the victorious Axis powers.
It is the only Dick novel to win a Hugo Award. In this was adapted into a television series by Amazon Studios. The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch utilizes an array of science fiction concepts and features several layers of reality and unreality.
It is also one of Dick's first works to explore religious themes. The novel takes place in the 21st century, when, under UN authority, mankind has colonized the Solar System 's every habitable planet and moon.
Life is physically daunting and psychologically monotonous for most colonists, so the UN must draft people to go to the colonies. Most entertain themselves using "Perky Pat" dolls and accessories manufactured by Earth-based "P.
The company also secretly creates "Can-D", an illegal but widely available hallucinogenic drug allowing the user to "translate" into Perky Pat if the drug user is a woman or Pat's boyfriend, Walt if the drug user is a man.
This recreational use of Can-D allows colonists to experience a few minutes of an idealized life on Earth by participating in a collective hallucination.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? It occurs on a dying, poisoned Earth de-populated of almost all animals and all "successful" humans; the only remaining inhabitants of the planet are people with no prospects off-world.
The novel is the literary source of the film Blade Runner What crucial factor defines humanity as distinctly "alive", versus those merely alive only in their outward appearance?
Ubik employs extensive psychic telepathy and a suspended state after death in creating a state of eroding reality. A group of psychics is sent to investigate a rival organisation, but several of them are apparently killed by a saboteur's bomb.
Much of the following novel flicks between different equally plausible realities and the "real" reality, a state of half-life and psychically manipulated realities.
In , Time magazine listed it among the "All-TIME Greatest Novels" published since Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said concerns Jason Taverner, a television star living in a dystopian near-future police state.
After being attacked by an angry ex-girlfriend, Taverner awakens in a dingy Los Angeles hotel room.
He still has his money in his wallet, but his identification cards are missing. This is no minor inconvenience, as security checkpoints manned by "pols" and "nats", the police and National Guard are set up throughout the city to stop and arrest anyone without valid ID.
Jason at first thinks that he was robbed, but soon discovers that his entire identity has been erased. There is no record of him in any official database, and even his closest associates do not recognize or remember him.
For the first time in many years, Jason has no fame or reputation to rely on. He has only his innate charm and social graces to help him as he tries to find out what happened to his past while avoiding the attention of the pols.
The novel was Dick's first published novel after years of silence, during which time his critical reputation had grown, and this novel was awarded the John W.
Dick novel nominated for both a Hugo and a Nebula Award. In an essay written two years before his death, Dick described how he learned from his Episcopal priest that an important scene in Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said — involving its other main character, the eponymous Police General Felix Buckman, was very similar to a scene in Acts of the Apostles ,  a book of the New Testament.
Film director Richard Linklater discusses this novel in his film Waking Life , which begins with a scene reminiscent of another Dick novel, Time Out of Joint.
A Scanner Darkly is a bleak mixture of science fiction and police procedural novels; in its story, an undercover narcotics police detective begins to lose touch with reality after falling victim to Substance D, the same permanently mind-altering drug he was enlisted to help fight.
Substance D is instantly addictive, beginning with a pleasant euphoria which is quickly replaced with increasing confusion, hallucinations and eventually total psychosis.
In this novel, as with all Dick novels, there is an underlying thread of paranoia and dissociation with multiple realities perceived simultaneously.
It was adapted to film by Richard Linklater. The Philip K. Dick Reader  is an introduction to the variety of Dick's short fiction. VALIS is perhaps Dick's most postmodern and autobiographical novel, examining his own unexplained experiences.
It may also be his most academically studied work, and was adapted as an opera by Tod Machover. The word VALIS is the acronym for Vast Active Living Intelligence System.
Later, Dick theorized that VALIS was both a "reality generator" and a means of extraterrestrial communication. A fourth VALIS manuscript, Radio Free Albemuth , although composed in , was posthumously published in This work is described by the publisher Arbor House as "an introduction and key to his magnificent VALIS trilogy".
Regardless of the feeling that he was somehow experiencing a divine communication, Dick was never fully able to rationalize the events.
For the rest of his life, he struggled to comprehend what was occurring, questioning his own sanity and perception of reality.
He transcribed what thoughts he could into an eight-thousand-page, one-million-word journal dubbed the Exegesis. From until his death in , Dick spent many nights writing in this journal.
A recurring theme in Exegesis is Dick's hypothesis that history had been stopped in the first century AD, and that "the Empire never ended". He saw Rome as the pinnacle of materialism and despotism , which, after forcing the Gnostics underground, had kept the population of Earth enslaved to worldly possessions.
Dick believed that VALIS had communicated with him, and anonymously others, to induce the impeachment of U. President Richard Nixon , whom Dick believed to be the current Emperor of Rome incarnate.
In a essay titled "Self Portrait", collected in the book The Shifting Realities of Philip K. Dick , Dick reflects on his work and lists which books he feels "might escape World War Three": Eye in the Sky , The Man in the High Castle , Martian Time-Slip , Dr.
Bloodmoney, or How We Got Along After the Bomb , The Zap Gun , The Penultimate Truth , The Simulacra , The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch which he refers to as "the most vital of them all" , Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Several of Dick's stories have been made into films. Dick himself wrote a screenplay for an intended film adaptation of Ubik in , but the film was never made.
Many film adaptations have not used Dick's original titles. When asked why this was, Dick's ex-wife Tessa said, "Actually, the books rarely carry Phil's original titles, as the editors usually wrote new titles after reading his manuscripts.
Phil often commented that he couldn't write good titles. If he could, he would have been an advertising writer instead of a novelist.
Future films based on Dick's writing include an animated adaptation of The King of the Elves from Walt Disney Animation Studios , which was set to be released in the spring of but is currently still in preproduction; and a film adaptation of Ubik which, according to Dick's daughter, Isa Dick Hackett, is in advanced negotiation.

Lawrence Sutin 's biography of Dick, Divine Invasions: A Life of Philip K. Dick , is considered the standard biographical treatment of Dick's life.
Dick , which the author describes in his preface in this way:. The book you hold in your hands is a very peculiar book.
I have tried to depict the life of Philip K. Dick from the inside, in other words, with the same freedom and empathy — indeed with the same truth — with which he depicted his own characters.
Critics of the book have complained about the lack of fact checking, sourcing, notes and index, "the usual evidence of deep research that gives a biography the solid stamp of authority.
Dick has influenced many writers, including Jonathan Lethem  and Ursula K. Le Guin. Dick Society was an organization dedicated to promoting the literary works of Dick and was led by Dick's longtime friend and music journalist Paul Williams.
Williams also served as Dick's literary executor  for several years after Dick's death and wrote one of the first biographies of Dick, entitled Only Apparently Real: The World of Philip K.
Dick estate owns and operates the production company Electric Shepherd Productions,  which has produced the films Adjustment Bureau , the TV series The Man in the High Castle  and also a Marvel Comics 5-issue adaptation of Electric Ant.
Dick was recreated by his fans in the form of a simulacrum or remote-controlled android designed in his likeness.
Dick simulacrum was included on a discussion panel in a San Diego Comic Con presentation about the film adaptation of the novel, A Scanner Darkly.
In February , an America West Airlines employee misplaced the android's head, and it has not yet been found. It is hyperreal.
It is a universe of simulation, which is something altogether different. And this is so not because Dick speaks specifically of simulacra.
SF has always done so, but it has always played upon the double, on artificial replication or imaginary duplication, whereas here the double has disappeared.
There is no more double; one is always already in the other world, an other world which is not another, without mirrors or projection or utopias as means for reflection.
The simulation is impassable, unsurpassable, checkmated, without exteriority. We can no longer move "through the mirror" to the other side, as we could during the golden age of transcendence.
For his anti-government skepticism, Philip K. Dick was afforded minor mention in Mythmakers and Lawbreakers , a collection of interviews about fiction by anarchist authors.
Noting his early authorship of The Last of the Masters , an anarchist-themed novelette, author Margaret Killjoy expressed that while Dick never fully sided with anarchism , his opposition to government centralization and organized religion has influenced anarchist interpretations of gnosticism.
