Anthony Peake - A Life of Philip K. Dick: The Man Who Remembered The Future

Oct 20, 2013 by Martin Higgins

Anthony Peake is a consciousness theorist and perhaps the ideal candidate to write A Life of Philip K. Dick: The Man Who Remembered the Future, a new biography of a novelist obsessed with probing the nature of reality.
