Philip K. Dick never really got to see his own success, as he died while the Blade Runner film was being produced. He never got to see the cult phenomenon it would become. Many of his other works also went on to be successful films, most notably Total Recall, Minority Report and A Scanner Darkly.
With the success of the films based off of his work, his books started to sell quite well. All his hard work paid off but for him, was unfortunately too little, too late.
I have read a lot of Dick’s books since my teen years. Here are my twenty favorites:
1. The Man In The High Castle
2. Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said
3. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
5. Lies, Inc.
6. The Penultimate Truth
7. A Scanner Darkly
9. The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch
10. The Transmigration of Timothy Archer
11. Confessions of a Crap Artist
12. Martian Time-Slip
13. Radio Free Albemuth
14. Now Wait For Last Year
15. Clans of the Alphane Moon
16. The Divine Invasion
17. A Maze of Death
18. We Can Build You
19. The Cosmic Puppets
20. Time Out Joint
