The Short Stories of Philip K. Dick
Philip K. Dick published 117 short stories in magazines during his life time, between 1952 and 1981. Three stories were published posthumously. The majority of the short stories were written and published in pulp magazines before 1960 (see chart). In this section of the web site you will see a complete publishing history of each story. The date indicated for each story is the date of its first publication (not the date of its writing).
Before 1988, when Underwood Miller published the entire catalog of short stories in the 5 volume Collected Stories of Philip K. Dick, most of the stories could only be found in their original pulp magazine publication, or in a handful of collections and anthologies. Today most of the stories are available in multiple editions.
Some of the stories published in pulps are short novels (novellas) and were published as novels with or without additional text. For example, A. Lincoln, Simulacrum, published in two issues of Amazing (11/69 and 1/70) was later published as We Can Build You and All We Marsmen, serialized in three issues of Worlds of Tomorrow (1963) was expanded and published as Martian Time-Slip.
Most of the Philip K. Dick movies are based on short stories, such as Total Recall (We Can Remember It for You Wholesale), Minority Report, Screamers (The Second Variety), Impostor, Paycheck, Next (The Golden Man).
