Bookwomble I like this one. His "mainstream" books are good. 5mo
Pruzy Great hashtag! 5mo
dystopianaut @Bookwomble so do i! i was sort of dreading reaching the point of reading his mainstream novels- and feeling guilty about feeling that way- but i‘ve actually really liked them all! such interesting character studies. they also give such a clear glimpse into the time they were written. i only have one left now- “mary and the giant”, which i‘m currently reading. have you read it? 5mo

dystopianaut @Pruzy thank you so much! i‘ve spent the last year working through PKD‘s oeuvre, hence #myPKDjourney. only 4 left to read!!! then onto his short stories. 🙂 do you have a favorite PKD? 🖤 5mo
Bookwomble @dystopianaut Yes, but many years ago when it first came out in Picador, so I don't remember a great deal about it. It's the record store one isn't it? I think it draws a lot on PKD's experience working in a record shop. 5mo
dystopianaut @Bookwomble yes it is! i‘ve loved reading all of his books back-to-back because it really highlights all the recurring themes, names, places, characters, etc and also makes you realize just how much he draws from his own life experiences. 5mo
Pruzy @dystopianaut Yes! Now Wait for Last Year was one of my favourites, as was The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch. What did you think of these two? 4mo
dystopianaut @Pruzy i love both of those! my favorite PKDs are the ones where he REALLY blurs the lines of reality, constantly shifting back and forth to disorient & unnerve the reader, which he does very well in both of those. two of my other favorites for that reason are ubik (of course) and maze of death. 🖤 4mo

LeahBergen Yay! 👏🏻👏🏻 I‘m so glad (and I‘ll also say “sorry” in advance; I order SO many books from them and now you might, too 😆😆). 8mo
Pruzy Yes! The variety of PKD books that are available on Book Depository is amazing! Way better selection than what is available in NA! 8mo
Cinfhen Yay!! Two weeks is pretty good turn around 👍🏻enjoy 😁 8mo
BookwormAHN Yay, enjoy 👏🏻 8mo
dystopianaut @greeniezona they were all written in the 50s/60s and were published posthumously! i‘m on a mission to read all of PKD‘s novels (currently sitting at 33/44) so i‘ve been looking for these guys for awhile! can‘t wait to read them. 😍 have you read most of his work? 8mo
dystopianaut @Chrissyreadit thank you!!! can‘t wait! 😍 8mo
dystopianaut @CSeydel thank you so much again! ☺️💕 8mo
greeniezona Not most, but a bunch. 8mo
dystopianaut @LeahBergen ohhhhh yeah, my book depository “wishlist” is already out of control. 😂😳🙈 thank you so much again!!! 🖤 8mo
dystopianaut @Pruzy i had no idea! i‘ve been looking for these for awhile and couldn‘t believe it when i found them! and oh boy, the selection of different covers/editions they have of his other works...... i think i‘m in trouble. 😳😂 8mo
dystopianaut @Cinfhen i couldn‘t believe they got here so fast! will definitely be buying from them again. thank you!! 💜 8mo
dystopianaut @greeniezona he‘s a real gem. i can‘t get enough! which is your favorite that you‘ve read? 8mo
greeniezona I found a list over on listchallenges.com (I love that site), and it appears I‘ve read 12 of his books so far, a few of them more than once, and of course, a bunch of his short stories. If pressed to choose just one favorite, it would probably be A Scanner Darkly, but I love Valis and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep as well. How about you? 8mo
dystopianaut @greeniezona ooooh fun, i‘ll have to check out that site! 🙂 those are all great picks! valis is fascinating, and i think by reading it you‘re able to get a lot more out of his other works... it adds another layer to everything. it‘s so hard to pick a favorite, but i think i‘d have to go with ubik. i also really love martian time-slip, maze of death, & flow my tears! 🖤 8mo

i‘ve said it before & i‘ll say it again.... no one can start a book like PKD does. 😍💕 what are some of your favorite book (PKD or otherwise) opening lines/paragraphs?! 🖤 #myPKDjourney

greeniezona This is a great opener. This was the most recent PKD book I‘ve read, I read it over Christmas. 8mo
dystopianaut @greeniezona right?! so good! PKD knows how to get you hooked within the first few sentences. one of my all time favorite book openers is a scanner darkly‘s opening! 🦟🖤 8mo
Linda_Bloodworth_Author I absolutely love A Scanner Darkly. 4mo

no one else in the world can start a book the way #PKD does. 🖤 #myPKDjourney

Gina Have you ever read some of his short stories in the 50's magazine Amazing Stories? I've been trying to hunt down copies I can afford. And forget the ones with H.G. Wells. I'd need to win the lottery to buy those... 9mo
dystopianaut @gina no but i would LOVE to! 🖤 have you ever looked at thephildickian‘s website/facebook/ebay store? i‘m not sure if he has any or if he does how the prices would compare, but the collection he has amassed is astounding and he is always selling bits & pieces! 9mo
Gina @dystopianaut thanks! 9mo
