Read full description of the books:
A fitting tribute to a great philosophical writer who found science fiction the ideal form for the expression of his ideas - The Independent
The fourth volume of the definitive five-book set of the complete collected stories of the twentieth century's greatest sf author covers a wide span, from late 1954 through to 1963. Those were the years during which Dick began writing novels prolifically and his short story output lessened. The title story of this collection is being made into a Steven Spielberg movie of the same name, while "The Days of Perky Pat" inspired one of Dick's greatest works, the novel The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldridge; The Penultimate Truth grew from "The Mold of Yancy". Philip K. Dick is shown at his incomparable prime in this stunning collection.

In 1952, he began writing professionally and proceeded to write numerous novels and short-story collections. He won the Hugo Award for the best novel in 1962 for The Man in the High Castle and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best novel of the year in 1974 for Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said.

In addition to 44 published novels, Dick wrote approximately 121 short stories, most of which appeared in science fiction magazines during his lifetime. Although Dick spent most of his career as a writer in near-poverty, ten of his stories have been adapted into popular films since his death, including Blade Runner, Total Recall, A Scanner Darkly, Minority Report, Paycheck, Next, Screamers, and The Adjustment Bureau. In 2005, Time magazine named Ubik one of the one hundred greatest English-language novels published since 1923.
