Philip Kindred Dick (December 16 1928March 2 1982) was an American writer, mostly known for his works of science fiction. In addition to his published novels, Dick wrote "approximately 121 short stories, most of them for science fiction magazines." At least eight of his stories have been adapted for film, most famously Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? as Blade Runner — an example of a dystopian psychopath who discovers what it means to be human, and a human discovers that he has more than a little in common with a psychopath.
