Dick (1928-1982), and if his name doesn’t ring a bell, it’s an amazing thing…for you see, one of his biggest novels, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, became the cult classic movie “Blade Runner”, which is currently rumored to have a “upgrade” (along with a lot of the other movies from my generation.

Out of his works, other hit movies have included “Total Recall”, “Minority Report”, “Paycheck” and “Screamers”, among others.  A member of the Science Fiction Hall of Fame (2005), he is still considered one of the country’s premier eclectic writers.
