The tradition continues with the 2012 Philip K. Dick Calendar (available as a single pdf or the original Word documents). We hope that you enjoy them and will use them throughout the year.
The creation of the calendars involved effort mostly by Lord Running Clam plus some work by the web site developer and are available for free. If you are impressed with the result and would like to give something back, please use the donate box on the right hand column of this page (“Help Keep The Site Running”) or donate to the Paul Williams fund at http://www.paulwilliams.com.

I continue to be chagrined by the lack of kudos and accolades for his eminence Sir Lord Running Clam, to recognize the ongoing effort on his part for Philip K. Dick. Not only is he responsible for the ingenious and creative calendar but at least one PKD fanzine and numerous article and essays over the years.
WHY is it that individuals like him continue to go unnoticed???
PKD fans are, after all, responsible for PKD’s early and current “success.”
Not academics. Not hollywood. You did know that, didn’t you???
Yes, we know Frank 😉 I periodically bow at the Lord’s feet (LRC, that is… well, okay sometimes to Buddha, too.) AUM!!
I thought we should SELL the calendar, so LRC, the site, and others could benefit. Happy New Year, all!!!
ps: the latest on the Exegesis: http://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/2011/12/30/the-exegesis-philip-dick-strange-collection-writing-that-deals-with-mystic-experiences/CWpgOqtClUvaxnpYWoNW0O/story.html
I was a subscriber to FDO and even wrote an article for the Eye In The Sky issue so long ago. I have been following LRC work for some time including purchasing his Pink Beam book. I was recently amazed by the amount of content in his PKDweb, http://2010philipkdickfans.philipkdickfans.com/pkdweb/. Organizing the first PKD Festival. He is such an asset to the PKD community!
More than an asset, a veritable ubiquitous icon for what fans can accomplish. I’m sure somewhere out there exists a splendid crystal statue depicting his royal eminence, Sir Lord Running Clam, with a copy of PKD Otaku in one pseudopod…
Thanks! It’s funny that there are several hungarian book covers in it 🙂
Thanks for all the kind words. I did, indeed, use PKD cover pix from all over the world for this calendar. It was fun to make it up and the main problem was getting it all to fit on 2 pages (in .doc format). We should also note here the excellent contributions to PKD fandom over the years by Perry Kinman in his Japanese outpost. Perry did most of the work on the calendar entries and I did the pix. Thanks, Perry!
If you like the calendar, please contribute to this excellent new PKD fans website or to the Paul Williams Fund. Thank you – Lord RC
