I'm currently reading Galactic Pot-Healer by Philip K. Dick, and a bunch of Oscar Wilde's poems, plays, writing.

It's a hardcover with all 5 books in one.

Ooh! My brother read that novel. Well, the first one at least. He really liked it, he'd like stand in the middle of my room and read me passages from it.

God, I'm a Philip K. Dick FREAK! Have you read many others?

My favs are A Scanner Darkly, Now Wait For Last Year, and Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said.

I think I have over 25 of his books, including some pretty rare shit.

Genius, genius, genius. And Hollywood keeps doing terrible adaptations of his work; even when the films aren't bad, they rape the source material (Blade Runner, Minority Report).

When I was young, I read Do Androids Dream of Electric SHeep, and watched the movie Blade Runner as well. It is one of my favorite movies of all time, but I remember that it didn't follow with the original story very well. Yes, I love Philip K. Dick, and I'm really eager to read the rest of his novels. What rare stuff of his do you have?

I didn't really mean rare in a collectible sense, but some books that are a little harder to find, such as Puttering About in a Small Land (which isn't sci-fi at all), and a hardcover called The Dark Haired Girl, which is a collection of essays and other random stuff and gives a really intimate look into PKD's life, which was rather sad. I also have a copy of a documentary that was made about him a few years back. There's no existing footage of him, so they have an animated PKD over sound recordings.

They've reissued a lot of the novels in the big trade paperbacks that all have a similar design, but books from other publishing companies are harder to find. It is a little easier than it used to be after the success of Minority Report.

OMG I loved this book. I should reread it; it's been years. Tomorrow I start his Living to Tell the Tale.

I'm now reading "Stonehenge - a novel" by Bernard Cornwell.

After that, I'll move on to "The Birth of Venus" by Sarah Dunant

(I never used to not finish a book I started- but now my time is more precious I can't spend it on tedious books )
Well "The Way the Crow Flies" is much, much more interesting in my opinion. It`s an 800 page read but well worth it - I LOVED this book!
