I do co-own a large selection of them, though, and in — or some time thereabouts — I attended a seminar at the ICA, hosted by Brian Aldiss who else? One of his highs or lows of choice was horse tranquilliser. He married five times. He was a twin — his sister who he insisted was a lesbian died shortly after they were born.

The 5 Best Philip K. Dick Books — SHEA MAGAZINE
Philip Kindred Dick was a world-renowned American author, particularly famous for his science fiction works. Philip was born as a twin with a sister Jane Charlotte Dick. The two were born a whopping six weeks prematurely. When Philip was five years old, Joseph wanted to move again to Reno, Nevada, because of his work, but Dorothy took a stand, and the two divorced. It was in that Philip had his first brush with sci-fi, reading a magazine named Stirring Science Stories and the rest is history. Dick books are. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
