A new Philip K. DIck book by David Hyde is available from Amazon, both as a trade paperback edition and a Kindle edition. This is the second book published by Wide Books, a publisher dedicated to the work of Philip K. Dick.
In 1974 PKD announces his visionary experiences of 1974 to the world, opening up a puzzle and a quest for philosophers and seekers of all stripes to find the truth in the voluminous speculation that followed from this letter. From pink beams and strange dreams to orthogonal time and tutelary entities from the stars, it all begins in THE SELECTED LETTERS OF PHILIP K. DICK: 1974 This INDEX TO SL 74 is intended as an aid to the students of Philip K. Dick’s life and the scholars whose task it is to sort it all out. With the recently published EXEGESIS OF PHILIP K. DICK (2011), THE SELECTED LETTERS OF PHILIP K. DICK: 1974 (1991) and this INDEX TO THE SELECTED LETTERS 1974 (2013) scholars can now more closely study this critical year in the life of the 21st Century’s most acclaimed writer
