Finally after years, and years of waiting Philip K. Dicks “Exegesis” is scheduled to be released in 2011. PKD is best known for his novels and “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, “The Man in the High Castle” and “The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch”. These are his most popular works, despite the fact r the work actually regarding the Exegesis exclusively is Valis. Which for years has been an over looked PKD novel, which I’m sure will gain popularity among the masses that haven’t read any PKD yet.
Mr. Lethem, the author of novels like “Chronic City” and “The Fortress of Solitude,” and who has written frequently on Mr. Dick, said hesitated to describe ”Exegesis” as a work. He described the books as a chronicle of the period in which Mr. Dick “pulled himself together again, as a writer and a human being.” “He’d been launched into outer space by the visions of the early 70s,” Mr. Lethem said, “and he was going to try to come back with the truth – and that, by definition is an impossible task.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, got the rights to 39 published works, and are re-releasing those next year as well, so I guess we’ll have a bunch more books with stupid covers, like the last round of PKD books. I collect first edition PKD so I’m to worried about it.
So you’ve read this far. Whats this Exegesis about? Um. PDK had a series of experiences in which he believed he had information transmitted to his mind by a pink beam of light and if you don’t know that its possibly one of the longest works ever written by a human, Google it. They can sum up the crazy awesome shit way faster than I can.
Volume 1 – Expected 2011, Volume 2 Expected 2012
The empire never ended.
