And speaking of which...

Tessa Dick comments on PKD movies, in light of the upcoming UBIK. She says, "UBIK is one of the major sources of “inspiration” (or perhaps plagiarism) for The Matrix."

In yesterday's post I had originally mentioned this, but then decided it wasn't relevant to the point of the post and deleted it. The general idea of The Matrix was addressed not only in UBIK, but in other stories as well: that we are living in a "hologram" and everything we think is real is actually contrived and false.

  1. You are right, of course, that Phil wrote many stories about a faux reality. A Maze of Death comes to mind.
