Galactic Pot Healer is PKD.

And, yes, there are still boxes left with unknown goodies contained within.


pkd?


Philip K. Dick, the god of paranoia and paperback sf.
The Philip K. Dick Award is given each year for the best science fiction
novel published first in paperback.
During his life he wasn't popular enough to get published in hardback.
Since Bladerunner, Hollywood loves his stuff and has made a lot
of movies from his stories.
They are better in written form.
Woo hoo!

PKD is like "It's a wonderful life" as a deceased estate (I don't believe he left behind any children) it's fairly easy to get it turned into a movie without paying royalties

Also, they don't have to worry about the author making disparaging
remarks about the movie, which you know PKD would do, especially
to something like Total Recall.

There's always one post office that believes in taking the maximum
amount of time allowed for each package to be delivered.

Either that or I didn't send you anything because I forgot.

Or maybe that there is space time distortion and the package
was delivered to you in a previous life.

Or maybe there is no package, only the sembalance of a package.

Or maybe I sent it to Medeo.

Hey! Aren't you really Med... these are not the droids you are
looking for


What was I talking about?

Gads!  Free books?  Pulp sci fi?  I must be slipping in my old age.  Still got some?

I just picked up 'Deus Irae', PKD and Roger Zelazny writing together.  Looks spiff!
