Philip K. Dick was a science fiction writer whose 121 short stories and 44 novels in his lifetime. Several of those have been developed into television and film properties, such as Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), The Minority ReportTotal Recall (We Can Remember If For You Wholesale), A Scanner DarklyThe Adjustment Bureau, and The Man in the High Castle.

His stories are almost always about the shifting nature of reality, asking how any of us can really know anything about this uncertain universe we inhabit. Collected here in this book are 8 of his earlier short stories that deal with humanity’s obsession with violence and self-destruction, the dangers of Artificial Intelligence, the intricacies of time travel, and the folly of unbridled literalism.

Philip K. Dick’s genius is on full display in these stories, and they provide a glimpse into even greater ideas he would later develop in his novels. Dick’s writing explored the nature of reality, the pitfalls of technological overreach, intersecting alternate timelines, life after death, and the possibility that everything we experience is merely an elaborate simulation.

These Sci-Fi Lullabies of Philip K. Dick aren’t intended to put us to sleep. They’re designed to awaken all of us to the infinite wonder and mystery that constantly surrounds us. Things are never quite what they seem. This is our opportunity to explore the final frontier of pure imagination.
