Introduction to the Novels Page
by Paul Williams, former literary executor,
The Philip K Dick Estate
Many literary critics and scholars in Western and Eastern Europe, Japan, and throughout
North America agree that Philip K. Dick will be remembered in years to come as one
of the great novelists of the 20th century.
Although this assessment is largely based on the power
and continuing relevance of Dick's science fiction
novels, these critics argue that he is most accurately
regarded not only as a great writer of science fiction
but as a major literary figure whose works make an
important and ongoing contribution to world literature
of all genres.
Below is a list of Philip K. Dick's 44 published novels, arranged chronologically by year of first publication.
"We who read science fiction," Dick wrote in 1981, "read it because we love to
experience this chain-reaction of ideas being set off in our minds by something we read,
something with a new idea in it; hence the very best science fiction ultimately winds up being a
collaboration between author and reader, in which both create--and enjoy doing it:
joy is the essential and final ingredient of science fiction, the joy of discovery of newness."
