Letters from Philip K Dick

This is an interesting page of letters from Philip K Dick to whoever it is that runs the page. It’s interesting to read his correspondence after reading a number of his books. For those who don’t know, Philip K Dick was one of the best science fiction writers of our time. Blade runner, Minority Report and such.

This makes for some intensely interesting reading. Phil was a big speed freak who also drank a lot of scotch. His writing in these letters sways from outright genius to full on bonkers. Interestingly, his letters from later on in his life are much more settled and less crazy. I guess that’s when he gave up on the booze and the snort.

If you haven’t read any PKD, I definitely recommend picking up some of his stuff. It’s great.
