About

An electrical assortment of interviews--such as the first and the past --with among those 20th century's most prolific, most influential, and dazzlingly original authors of science fiction extended before Ridley Scott transformed Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? To Blade Runner, Philip K. Dick was slamming away at his typewriter in comparative obscurity, ostracized from the literary institution. Now he is widely regarded as one the most influential authors of the 20th century. These interviews show a person plagued with bouts of manic paranoia and unsuccessful suicide attempts; a profession fuelled with alcohol, amphetamines, and mysterious inspiration; and, most importantly, a glorious and generous creativity at work.
