One thought on “Interviews”
I have an interview I did with Philip K Dick on December 23, 1971 at his home in Santa Venetia, CA. There is a transcript of the 2 1/2 hour interview on my website james holmes.org. I would like to be listed on and linked to your interview page. It’s a fun interview and I’ve wanted to share it with the PKD aficionados for quite a while. I just finished going public with my website. I made the interview for a radio series I planned to do on KZSU the Stanford University radio station. The history of the tapes is interesting and eventually I’ll get around to writing a post about it. Check the transcript and listen to the audio excerpts and get back to me if you’re interested.
