Joe Informatico (joeinformatico) | 859 comments This is a weird but interesting story from about two years ago (so apologies if this has come up already): In 1974, Philip K. Dick wrote a letter to the FBI, accusing Stanislaw Lem of heading up a Communist conspiracy among the American science fiction community. Ironically, PKD was the only American SF author Lem had any respect for.
