Long time since my last post here. Now, a premiere, or better, a pre-post… I have so much work at home, classifying, cleaning and setting up my room space to achieve a clear goal. Have all my collection in order and accesible… No more boxes, no more piles of books, magazines and so on in a chaotic environment. The work is not finished yet, but light is near to come. Philip K Dick is one of the most important sections in my collection about Blade Runner. In fact, I think is the largest book collection I have about one topic. More than… 500 books? perhapsRead More →

At last, the #1 issue of this comic serie has arrived. Three different covers, the 4th was not available (yet) at Fordibben Planet Comics. No matter. This edition is awesome. Paper quality, size, print, colors… a nice graphic adaptation of the Dick’s novel. Finally, all the author ideas are not adapted, translated to paper step by step. A great news for fans! Finalmente llega el número 1 de la serie en comic. Con tres portadas diferentes de las cuatro existentes (la cuarta todavía no disponible en Forbidden Planet Comics). Sin problema. Esta edición es impresionante. La calidad del papel, tamaño, color, impresión…. es una bonitaRead More →

Not Tarantino one. Real pulp fiction magazines and books are in my focus these days. Philip K Dick, like many many other authors of Sci-fi novels and short stories, published a bunch of works in those cheap publications. From 50’s to 60’s (for now), I’d located several of them, in great titles like Galaxy, If, Wonder Stories, Amazing Stories, and many more. These little books are old, very old, cheap paper with rusty and hard smell… Old paper, humidity, bacteries…. All of this will be removed, with luck, when I receive a little ozonizer!!! Will post the results… Meanwhile, I love to collect these littleRead More →

Yeah, just arrived the fourth volume of PKD Selected Letters. A very rare and difficult one. It contains the first period, from 1938 to 1971. Now, the entire collection is in my hands.

Hard to find (just try it!), I’m luckily located this copy at ebay. Rare, very rare to see the PKD classic in Henrew language… Reading order is reverse, that is, from back to cover (like Japanese books and so on). And, the only data in occidental characters are the main title, ISBN number and year of publication… Wow, I need some lessons!!! Sueñan los androides con ovejas eléctricas? en edición hebrea Muy raro de localizar (¡sólo inténtalo!), he tenido la suerte de localizar una copia en ebay.
