For More Information

The best primary source bibliography that I have seen online is in Wikipedia:

The best secondary source bibliography I have seen (and thanks to Umberto Rossi) I have been reminded of

VALBS (Vast Active Living Bibliographic System) Secondary Texts on PKD

which I haven’t looked through in some time and had forgotten about it.

The most complex with covers shots and publication editions is

The Philip K. Dick Bookshelf

which overwhelms me with the amount of data there when I look at it.

  1. You seem to be missing a batch of 1955 short stories according to the Copyright Office Catalog. Must be those pesky duplicate titles of 1954 and 1955 like two “Adjustment Team”s and two “Shell Game”s. That is so confusing I can’t imagine why PKD would have written and published over 20 stories with titles he’d already used for other stories. I bet The Collected Stories of Philip K. Dick could be expanded to six volumes if it were to include the 1955 stories with titles that duplicate titles of 1954 stories.

  2. “Strange Memories Of Death” belongs in the Non-Fiction section. IMO at this moment, the title uses death as metaphor for change in the manner of references to the death of seasons, eras, empires and so on. Regardless, the story is an insight-providing autobiographical snippet centered on the conversion of PKD’s Santa Ana apartment building from apartment units to condominium units which addresses multiple matters in relatively few pages.

    I may have some interesting previously unpublished discussion about the story and related matters from a taped 1992 discussion with Tim Powers which could be converted to mp3 from cassette. If there is interest I can try doing this when I find the time and let the webmaster decide if it is interesting enough to use on the website.
