Many more details in the link, but just to repeat:

  1. Not only does Disney like Dick, so does most of Hollywood. Tom Cruise is a big Dick fan, having made Minority Report. The Governor of California as well.

    I’ve tried Dick a few times, but it left a strange taste in my mouth. Maybe I should try it again with some stimulants?

  2. I’ve read a lot of Phil Dick, most of it after I interviewed him at his home in 1981. He had such a unique take on his ideas that it was like reading science fiction for the first time because I couldn’t compare it to anyone else’s work. You might try some of his short stories like “We Can Remember If For You Wholesale” which is a much more gentle story than the bizarre film TOTAL RECALL that it was turned into.

  3. “He had such a unique take on his ideas …”

    Philip K. Dick had many unique ideas. Many involved constant surveilance by the FBI. I’m not sure if this was legit, or if he was just paranoid … but he seemed like a cool guy who wrote remarkable stuff.
