Philip K Dick - further reading on the net

I've been learning heaps at the Philip K Dick course taught by Erik Davis. I've done a few web searches and as well as a few of the links posted by Erik & other classmates, I've started making a list. many of them are on the Total Dick Head blog which has heaps of great info & links to follow up on. the discussions have been great. I've been learning about some different religions and belief systems (eg Gnosticism)

We've been reading The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch so far so a lot of the links below relate to that. this week we're watching Blade Runner (one of my favourite films). I'll try add some links as I come across them.

(not in any particular order & some aren't strictly PKD)

Serving Up Even More Chew-Z Sources

http://philipkdick.com/new_letters.html
Philip K. Dick's correspondence to family, friends, associates, fans and even government officials provide a candid glimpse into the author's life and work. His letters, many of which were published in a five volume-set called "The Selected Letters of Philip K. Dick", are of even greater interest to PKD fans and scholars considering that they probably wouldn't be available had the author been alive during the Internet age when e-mail has all but replaced paper letters.

http://philipkdick.com/new_exegesis.html
Although Philip K. Dick's In the Pursuit of VALIS: Selections from the Exegesis was published in the year 1991, there remain thousands of unpublished pages from this mostly handwritten journal. It contains autobiographical material, philosophical speculation and analysis of his own fiction. Due to the continuing interest in these unpublished pages, the Philip K. Dick Trust will be releasing additional volumes from the vast collection. These writings will be exclusive to PhilipKDick.com. Please visit regularly to see the most recent releases.
