Renowned science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, the main character in a new biopic


Philip K. Dick is one of the most important and influential science fiction authors of all time. He wrote masterpieces such as The Man in the High Castle, Ubik, A Scanner Darkly, and novels that inspired films such as Blade Runner and Minority Report.

Clearly, the author’s collection of writings is far more extensive than that.

Dick is also said to have been a very troubled man: he suffered from drug abuse, had hallucinations, at one point attempted suicide, mental illness unfortunately being part of the writer’s daily life.

Although, at least initially, law enforcement had classified the incident as a simple robbery, they later began to suspect that Philip K. Dick may have been framed for unknown reasons. The culprit was never caught, but Dick wrote this about the event:

“The robbery of my home a year ago in San Rafael made me move out of the United States at last. I came home one evening to find chaos everywhere, my files rifled through, papers of every kind gone, stereo gone, practically everything gone, windows and doors smashed. To this day I don’t know who did it. I think there were other reasons; Too many worthless items were taken. The police have somewhat favoured the theory that I had set the whole thing up. That’s not true. To some extent, I admit I favoured the theory that I did it,” wrote Philip K. Dick.
