Just Finished Reading “Counter-Clock World”

leave a comment »

Counter-Clock World is a nice book, although I was a little confused by the storyline in the beginning. I love Philip K. Dick!

The inlay on my copy, which is a first edition paperback, is:

Time has reversed its flow: the dead are coming back to life, and people grow younger instead of older.

And this says it all, and still it’s this flow which is well described. From eating to sleeping, and even children being unborn.

A very good read, although being Philip K. Dick it moves you in a way you haven’t been moved before.

So I finally finished “A Scanner Darkly“, I thought the book was brilliant! Although it touched a little close to home sometimes.

Philip K. Dick’s Ubik to become a motion picture

leave a comment »

I was told off and kicked into shape by a reader regarding Philip K. Dick, so I actually did a little research. I haven’t read the book (Wikipedia), but shall soon. It’s slated to go into production in 2009, although Internet Movie Database is secretive about it and has a release date for (IMDB) in 2010.

After reading the press release at Celluloid Dreams to product Philip K. Dick Masterpiece: Ubik

The novel, a searing metaphysical comedy of death and salvation in which the departed give business advice, shop for their next incarnation, and run the continual risk of dying yet again, was dubbed “one of the 100 greatest English language novels” by Time magazine.

I have to read it.
