Synopsis

The stories in this collection, from the pen of Philip K. Dick, form the inspiration for the ten-part anthology series, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, broadcast on Channel 4.

Starring, amongst others, Bryan Cranston, Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger and Steve Buscemi, each episode is set to be a thrilling standalone drama adapted from the original story by a team of British and American writers. The series will both illustrate Philip K. Dick's prophetic vision and celebrate the enduring appeal of the prized Sci-Fi novelist's work.[ ](/author/philip-k-dick/886)
