phillip k. dick wrote many awesome books which i have really enjoyed. among the brilliant stories he managed to transfer from his truly electric mind onto paper is one of my favorite novels ever. 'do androids dream of electric sheep' was published in 1968. the poetic title drew me in and i loved every moment. never have i desired to see 'blade runner', the film version of the book. that is not the case with walter tevis, another writer of speculative fiction who is my very favorite author of all. both these writers had great success in the film world, having many of their works adapted for movies. something about the mind of phillip makes me feel that the printed word is the safest place to stop with him.
