If you're even a casual science fiction fan, whether you realize it or not, you've already experienced the inventive, clever, and altogether exceptional storytelling of the late Philip K. Dick. Have you ever seen Total Recall? Well, it's based on Dick's short story "We Can Remember It for You for Wholesale." How about Minority Report? Yup, that's another Dick-derived classic, from his tale of the same name. This definitive collection gathers 21 of the sci-fi legend's most memorable works.
Fun Fact: Dick was also an accomplished novelist, and two of his full-length books have spawned movies: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (filmed as Blade Runner) and A Scanner Darkly.
