American writer. Considered by many to be the master of philosophical Science Fiction, Philip K Dick's many novels and short stories, although technically outdated, still hold a chilling reality to them even to this day and beyond. He won the Hugo Award for best Science Fiction novel of 1963 with 'The Man In The High Castle' which depicts what post-World War II would have been like if Germany and Japan had won. There is even an annual award in his name -- The Philip K Dick Award -- started in 1982 (the year of his untimely death). Many of his short stories and/or novels have been brought to the screen and he continues to influence more and more new fans every day.

Philip K Dick was born December 16, 1928 in Chicago Illinois as fraternal twins, but his twin sister died six weeks later which left Dick with a void in his heart for the rest of his life. He only lived to the age of 53, dying on March 2, 1982 of heart failure shortly after his first big-screen adaptation of 'Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep' ('Blade Runner'). He was buried beside his sister in Fort Morgan, Colorado.
