Science fiction writer Philip K. Dick started out in the 1950s writing short stories for pulp magazines in a field not considered serious literature.  By the time of his death in the 1980s, he was viewed as one of the most innovative novelists in the world. He used science fction as a vehicle for philosophy and theology, creating a modern form of anarcho-Gnosticism.

His work also, in the opinion of your host, philosopher Steve Katz, may have illuminated the spiritual implications of Dr. Wilhelm Reich's "Oranur Experiment."
