Academic treatment of PKD's legacy of work, including pieces from his 'Exegesis'.

My brother took it out for me while I was visiting him in Tucson, close to 2 years ago. I stayed up all night to read it before I had to leave, and I'm glad my determination won out. The content, though, is a little dry for my tastes, and it's been so long that while I know it had a profound effect on me I cannot remember much about it.

That's what happens when you wait to write reviews, folks.

Looking for my current read of Eye in the Sky but found this interesting among the long list of books by or about PKD.

Interesting, though a little mind-boggling. Luckily it's short, because I will probably need to read it at least once more, along with some more of Dick's work.
