Author: Brian J Robb. Publisher: Titan Books. Dick died on the verge of the critical and commercial success he had always craved – before the release of Blade Runner, the film which, as Brian J Robb said, created the Philip K Dick industry. Robb’s Counterfeit Worlds is, of course, a product of that industry, albeit it’s one crafted with much love and respect for its subject.

So far, we have 7 entries in the first of three drawings for a signed copy of my book. We are a sci fi film festival inspired by the themes of Philip K. DIck, trans humanism, paranoia, what is reality, who does it mean to be human.

From Blade Runner to the forthcoming A Scanner Darkly (starring Keanu Reeves), via Total Recall, Screamers, Impostor, Paycheck and Tom Cruise in Minority Report, the legacy of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick has revolutionised Hollywood. Counterfeit Worlds is the definitive history of all the adaptations of Dick's work, not only the films but also TV series, radio plays, even operas and computer games. Beginning with a concise biography of Dick, acclaimed writer Brian J. Robb looks at the evolution and production of each project in depth, along the way uncovering a wealth of new information, including the stories behind the fascinating unmade film Ubik (with a screenplay by Dick himself), and the stillborn sequels to Total Recall and the legendary Blade Runner.

First off, I haven't read too many books on films based upon the works of PKD. I bought this book because I'm a fan of Dick's works, and the films that are closely linked to it (A Scanner Darkly primarily, but before that film came out, Blade Runner - the rest, to me, are like Vanilla Sky, and the Matrix; movies `using' Dick's ideas).

Secondly, I found this to be a very good overview of not only the films that were based on PKD's works (Blade Runner, Total Recall, Screamers, Confessions d'un Barjo, Impostor, Minority Report, Paycheck, and A Scanner Darkly), but also his life (~32 pages), radio and TV adaptations, and upcoming/unmade projects (film and otherwise).

You should read this book if;

a) You're interested in reading about PKD's life,

b) You're interested in reading about how some of his films ended up being made (those listed above),

c) You're interested in reading about the influence that PKD's works had on the realm of film in general.

You shouldn't read this book if you want to find out more about the radio/tv programs based upon his works, since you won't get too much from this book on these (not that you necessarily should).

If you're just interested in finding out more about Blade Runner, you'd probably be safe purchasing this book for that reason alone.

There's lots of pictures, the type is rather normal (small-ish, in a good way), and there's some new content in this book - not just the author's perspectives, but also new interviews, albeit only snippets from these - so you'll certainly get your money's worth.

4 stars because I didn't `love it' - I thought it was very good, and I may end up looking at particular parts over again (and it got me to dust off my copy of Impostor for another viewing), but there's no real reason to re-read the book, in my opinion.

I found the small (9-point?) font to be impossible to read. Not only that, but it is a light gray color, which makes it doubly annoying. Just an observation for folks who have bifocals and will need another level of reading glasses to read this at all!
