What If Our World Is Their Heaven?

(1987)
The Final Conversations With Phillip K. Dick
A non fiction book by

 
A REVEALING LOOK INTO THE LIFE AND FINAL WORKS OF 'SCIENCE FICTION'S ANSWER TO BORGES' In the field of science fiction, the work of Philip K Dick is unrivalled. Through books like Valis and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (later filmed by Ridley Scott as Blade Runner) his appeal and influence is worldwide, creating the standard for the literary science-fiction novel. In November of 1982, six months before the author's death, journalist Gwen Lee recorded the first of several in-depth 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). - Accounts of his religious experiences. - Discussions of Owl in Daylight, the novel he would never get the chance to write. A tale steeped in mysticism 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aplomb characteristic of Dick's writing, helping make this book not only an engaging read, but a unique and compelling historical document.
