Philip K. Dick journals to be published next year

30th April 2010

Extensive journals kept by science fiction author Philip K. Dick are set to be published next year.

The Exegesis will be released in the US in the autumn of 2011 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Edited by Jonathan Lethem and Pamela Jackson, The Exegesis has been described by the pair as a foundation for a number of ideas and themes that appear throughout the author's work.

Commenting on the author's prolific and consistently groundbreaking oeuvre, Bruce Nichols, publisher of adult trade at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, which bought the rights to Dick's unpublished works, said: '[His] books remain as provocative and cutting-edge today as ever.

'Each generation wants to claim him as its own and we look forward not only to the landmark publication of The Exegesis in fall 2011, but to inspiring a new generation of readers with his significant backlist.'

Dick, who died in 1982 at the age of 53, had a huge cult following and the release of The Exegesis is eagerly anticipated by fans.

The author is most renowned for his science fiction works Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Blade Runner, which was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster, and The Man in the High Castle.
