    The pictures at the top of many of the Short Story pages are taken from the CD: Sci-Fi & Fantasy Clipart (Atlantis to the Stars). Distributed by: CD Titles, POBox 360, Cambridge, MA 02141-0004. This is a great CD and the pictures are even better when seen in their large size. Unfortunately we had to reduce them a lot to speed up download times. When I have time I will credit the original artists. I'd've done this already but didn't think of it at the time, so now I have to go back through all the pages and correlate that with the CD. It's a lot of work! But I would like to thank these artists of the ASFA for this clipart. Three of the pictures were drawn by Lord RC, I can't remember which.

Sorry if I've left someone out.


    There is a lot of bibliographical material in this site. Some of it is bound to be incorrect. Many of the non-USA editions of Philip K. Dick's books are unknown to me and some of the cover pics are probably attributed to the wrong editions. If you find any errors then please email or write me and I'll make the corrections.

    The little This edition in GSM's Collection symbol next to any edition's bibliography indicates that this edition is in GSM's collection. Thanks again to all the PKD webmeisters for the cover pics of editions not in our collection. When time permits I'll include links to all these sites.


Quentin Reynolds in his fine book "They Fought For The Sky" (Bantam, 1957) about World War One flying aces, quotes Judge Brandeis: "If a man steals from one book it is plagiarism... If he steals from a hundred books it is research." I hope that those who find some portion of their work presented in the ENCYCLOPEDIA DICKIANA will consider it in that spirit. However, if anyone has any complaints I am willing to listen and will modify the contents accordingly if someone thinks I've stolen too much. But, basically, this website is a compendium of other people's work; a reference if you like. I hope it will be accepted as such. -- Lord RC 1999
