Philip K. Dick Festival coming to San Francisco, September 22-23


The Philip K. Dick Festival, scheduled for September 22-23 in San Francisco, is sure to be a heady, reality-bending time. Organizer and Total Dick-Head blogger David Gill informs us that he's lined up presentations by Jonathan Lethem, Erik Davis, Paul Sammon, and many other big thinkers on such subjects as self-induced amnesia, computer simulations, mysticism, dystopia, and, of course, drugs. 2012 Philip K.

    1. The film was based on a PKD short story called “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale.”  Piers Anthony wrote a novel based on the movie.  That’s in the Wikipedia link.
