This fully annotated edition of “Sci-Fi Lullabies, Vol. 2” includes:

  • A Foreword by Tessa Dick, highlighting the personal significance of Philip K. Dick’s literature
  • A timeline of the author’s major life events
  • A publisher’s note on the importance of the Quoir Classics series

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 Report, Total Recall (We Can Remember If For You Wholesale),
A Scanner Darkly, The 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 7 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.

Included in this collection are the following stories:

Prize Ship
The Hanging Stranger
Tony and the Beetles
The Crystal Crypt
The Variable Man
The Golden Man
Beyond the Door
