One thought on “PKD Otaku Submission Guidelines

  1. Great job, Michael. I think it would be important to add that PKD Otaku is indeed about Philip K. Dick, his fiction AND non-fiction. Not someone else. It can also be considered a “serconzine,” which is “fanspeak” for Serious Content Fanzine. Also, PKD wrote a hell of a lot more novels and short stories than just V.A.L.I.S. Cogent items about PKD’s early works, that are well written with relevant informed opinions would be most welcomed by Patrick Clark, I’m sure.
