Philip K. DickPhilip K. Dick, who died in 1982, only really began to earn the recognition he deserved toward the end of his life. Although Blade Runner, Ridley Scott’s 1982 future-noir adaptation of Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, was at best an interpretation of Dick’s vision, it opened a gateway to both Hollywood’s interest in the author’s ideas and a true ignition of interest in his work.
In this nightmare dystopia the Nazis have taken over New York, the Japanese control California and the African continent is virtually wiped out. In a neutral buffer zone in America that divides the world's new rival superpowers, lives the author of an underground bestseller. His book offers a new vision of reality - an alternative theory of world history in which the Axis powers were defeated - giving hope to the disenchanted. Does 'reality' lie with him, or is his world just one among many others?
