Some information about the autor:

Philip Kindred Dick author ( Chicago 1928-S. Ana 1982)

Snubbed and overlooked in life, Philip K. Dick was widely re-evaluated post-mortem both at home and in Europe (France and Italy in the 80’s became a real cult writer). Mainly active in the field of narrative fiction, was a forerunner of cyberpunk and, in some ways, a forerunner of that sub-genre of literature called post-modern avantpop. With his visionary novels explored the complex philosophical and sociological issues such as social manipulation, simulation and dissimulation of reality, the common conception of “false”, the search for the Divine.
