TRAVEL BEYOND THE KNOWN UNIVERSE
‘Dick quietly produced serious fiction in a popular form and there can be no greater praise.’
Philip K. Dick wrote over 120 short stories in his lifetime, and the very best of them are collected here. In classic science-fiction stories like ‘The Crystal Crypt’ and ‘The Defenders’ he dissects war, paranoia, and the red planet. ‘Minority Report’ and ‘We Can Remember It for You Wholesale’ – filmed as Total Recall in 1990 – explore some of his favourite preoccupations, such as free will and predestination. And this being Dick there are stranger offerings to be enjoyed too, such as the unnerving tragicomedy ‘Oh to be a Blobel!’ and the creeping horror of ‘The Hanging Stranger’. In his warm and insightful introduction, novelist Jonathan Lethem examines how Dick’s stories built a universe that was both paranoid and joyful, lovingly constructed from the building blocks of science fiction.
A SPECTACULAR ILLUSTRATED EDITION
Selected Short Stories showcases the work of 24 remarkable artists. The art styles are as diverse as the stories themselves: Anna Millais’s illustration for ‘The Crystal Crypt’ makes powerful use of dramatic angles and the sooty red skies of Mars; for ‘Colony’, Raisa Álava has created a psychedelic explosion of colour and detail, while Folio Society favourite Dave McKean has provided an eerie yet beautiful image of the ‘precogs’ from ‘Minority Report’. Brought together in an eye-catching binding, this edition also features a special die-cut slipcase with an interior illustration that playfully captures Dick’s unique mixture of awe and cynicism. Selected Short Stories is as much a work of art as it is a mind-expanding collection from one of the 20th century’s most ground-breaking writers.

ABOUT PHILIP K. DICK
Philip K. Dick was born in Chicago in 1928. At around the age of 12, Dick read his ﬁrst science-ﬁction magazine, which led to a lifelong engagement with the genre. After a brief stint at the University of Berkeley in 1949, he worked in a record store, Art Music Company. He wrote full-time from 1951, when he sold his ﬁrst short story, and went on to produce 44 novels and ﬁve collections of short stories. Dick struggled to achieve mainstream success – his non-science-ﬁction novels being returned by his agent in 1963 – but received enormous acclaim in the science-ﬁction world for his works exploring metaphysics, theology and politics. His best-known novels include The Man in the High Castle (1962; Folio Society, 2015), which won the Hugo Award in 1963; Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (1968; Folio Society, 2017); and Ubik (1969; Folio Society, 2019). Folio's collections of his short stories include The Complete Short Stories (Folio Society, 2021) and Selected Short Stories (Folio Society, 2022). Married ﬁve times, Dick died in 1982.
