A Day in the Afterlife: Revisiting the Life & Times of Philip K. Dick

We mentioned this documentary some time ago, and it’s time to give it another look. Why? Because Philip K. Dick, the great sci-fi writer, would have turned 82 years old today – and because Adjustment Bureau, a film loosely based on Dick’s short story, “Adjustment Team” (read it online here), will hit movie theaters later this week.

Filmed in 1994 by the BBC, A Day in the Afterlife looks back at Dick’s short and often troubled life and his sprawling body of literary work – 44 novels and 121 short stories in total. The film runs 57 minutes and, if you’re interested, you can download three of his works from our collection of Free Audio Books.
