PKD – the VALIS trilogy

I completed reading ‘VALIS’, a novel by SCI-FI author, Philip K. Dick

What a crazy read, and i use the term crazy with the utmost respect. I resonated with this story of spiritual, schizophrenia, intrigue, mystery, fear, love, excess and delusion.

I found it quite difficult to begin with, but as I got further in, the story unfolded. After a bit of googling and research, it seems that the story is sem-autobiographical, and with that knowledge, I feel humbled and in awe of Philip K. Dick’s writing prowess.

Maybe we all need a ZEBRA moment to set us free . . . ?

Check out whats new on the PKD scanner:
Another new film based on one of Dick’s stories
A Scanner Darkly. Seems this one will be *very* interesting to watch.

Having only read The Man in the High Castle, and a short story of his whose title eludes me at this time. I recommend you check out as much of his as you can … unique writing. I love it, I can’t wait to start on more, though I think I will need a bit of a break before I can continue with the VALIS trilogy.
