I think I understand the common ingredient in those whom my writing helps: they cannot or will not blunt their own intimations about the irrational, mysterious nature of reality, &, for them, my corpus of writing is one long ratiocination regarding this inexplicable reality, an investigation & presentation, analysis & response & personal history. My audience will always be limited to these people.

Philip K. Dick
1928 - 1982


I started these pages as a search for the books of Philip K. Dick.

For anybody who really gets interested in Phil and his works, I have noticed that the word "search" keeps popping up.

Phil had his own search for meaning, for humanity, for this world, for what is behind this world, for what is beyond this world.

These pages are stepping stones ... each one touching some part of my own search ... some about searching for Phil's books ... some about searching for others interested in Phil's works ... some about searching for meaning within Phil's works ... some about meaning others have sought.
