Abstract:

"In November of 1982, six months before Philip K. Dick's death, journalist Gwen Lee recorded the first of several in-depth discussions with the writer, discussions that continued over the course of the next three months. The subjects covered include the details of his writing process, his enthusiastic response to the scenes and trailers he'd seen of Blade Runner (he never lived to see the finished film), and accounts of his religious experiences. But the greatest amount of time was devoted to discussions of his next novel, a book he called Owl in Daylight, a book he would never get the chance to write. A tale steeped in mysticism, biotechnology, and the relationship between music and language, it was to be his masterpiece." "These interviews are filled with the wit and aplomb characteristic of Dick's writing, helping make What If Our World Is Their Heaven? not only an engaging read, but a unique historical document. It will be a must read for anyone interested in the field of science fiction."--BOOK JACKET.
