Philip K. Dick was a prolific writer both
professionally and personally. In addition to the volumes of
novels and short stories, he penned hundreds of
letters, essays and an 8,000 page Exegesis in which he
explored the mysteries of the universe.
The Philip K. Dick Trust is pleased to present these
selections from the author’s extensive archives. We
will be adding rarely seen and previously unavailable works each
month, including pages from the Exegesis. We hope you enjoy these
selections which we believe offer a unique glimpse
into the mind of Philip K. Dick.
Pages from "The Exegesis"
In 1974, Philip K. Dick had an experience which he described as "an invasion of my mind by a transcendentally rational mind."
He then began recording his thoughts into a journal which he called, "The Exegesis." This section contains scans of
actual pages from that journal.
Previously Unpublished or Rare Writings
When preparing a new novel or story, the author often put his preliminary ideas to paper. These writings are intriguing in a
historical context, as they frequently illustrate his process for developing plots and characters.
Personal and Business Letters
Even in his personal and business correspondence, Philip K. Dick often presented unique and visionary ideas regarding the world... and the future.
