The stories in this collection, from the pen of Philip K. Dick, form the inspiration for the ten-part anthology series, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, broadcast on Channel 4.

Starring, amongst others, Bryan Cranston, Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger and Steve Buscemi, each episode is set to be a thrilling standalone drama adapted from the original story by a team of British and American writers.

The series will both illustrate Philip K. Dick's prophetic vision and celebrate the enduring appeal of the prized Sci-Fi novelist's work.

Philip Kindred Dick (1928-82) was born in Chicago in 1928. His career as a science fiction writer comprised an early burst of short stories followed by a stream of novels, typically character studies incorporating androids, drugs, and hallucinations. 

His best works are generally agreed to be The Man in the High Castle and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the inspiration for the movie Blade Runner.
