Paycheck and Other Classic Stories by Philip K. Dick – Philip K. Dick

With a Preface by the Author and an Introduction by Roger Zelazny "The collected stories of Philip K. Dick are awe inspiring." --"The Washington Post" Readers worldwide consider Philip K. Dick to have been the greatest science fiction writer on any planet. Since his untimely death in 1982, interest in Dick's works has continued to mount, and his reputation has been enhanced by a growing body of critical attention. The Philip K. Dick Award is now presented annually to a distinguished work of science fiction, and the Philip K. Dick Society is devoted to the study and promulgation of his works. This collection draws from the writer's earliest short and medium-length fiction (including several previously unpublished stories), written during the years 1952-1955, and features such fascinating stories as "Paycheck " (adapted as a major motion picture starring Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman), "Beyond Lies the Wub, The Short Happy Life of the Brown Oxford, The Variable Man," and many others. Here, readers will find Dick's initial explorations of the themes he so brilliantly brought to life in his later work. Dick won the prestigious Hugo Award for the best novel of 1963 for "The Man in the High Castle." In the last year of his life, the film Blade Runner was made from his novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" More recently, Dick's short story "The Minority Report " inspired Steven Spielberg's movie of the same title. The classic stories of Philip K. Dick offer an intriguing glimpse into the imagination of one of science fiction's most enduring and respected names. "Philip K. Dick's best books always describe a future that is both entirely recognizable and utterly unimaginable." --"The New York Times Book Review" "More than anyone else in the field, Mr. Dick really puts you inside people's minds." --"The Wall Street Journal"

Some learners will fi nd it useful to keep a vocabulary notebook or vocabulary cards with the meaning of the new words. Theoretical part of the textbook is designed for medical students, physicians, nurses, nutritionists, and nutritional scientists whose fi rst language is not English. This part is very good help to those who want to learn professional journals and textbooks or take part in conferences conducted in English. Exercises in each unit can be used as a basis for discussion. The level of this part is intermediate to upper intermediate. The book is a valuable resource for both individual and group study.
