Philip K Dick on the little screen...

Thanks to The Casual Optimist I found out about two Philip K Dick related items. One is a BBC documentary made in 1994 about Philip K Dick called A Day in the Afterlife (follow the link) and the other is that Ridley Scott (of Bladerunner fame) is working on anther Phillip K Dick adaptation, this time for BBC1. The four part mini-series will be based upon Dick's The Man in the High Castle. More information available about this on the Guardian UK website.

For more about the man, there is a wonderful biography on the Philip K Dick website.

Maybe someone will get me The Man in the High Castle for Christmas if I am really good?
Hint hint family.

  1. Only if you are really good. Have you ever checked out 'the book depository'? The books are cheap and the postage is free, usually ends up being cheaper than Amazon.

    I love Bladerunner. Will have to watch that clip once my internet regains all it's powers.
