Cloud Chamber #42    June 1993

    {...} have you looked at a set of Gollancz's COLLECTED STORIES OF PHILIP K. DICK? You'd think these five would have to match; all being in standard grotty Gollancz Transitional jackets (after the clean all-yellow look but before the current full-colour-art covers). But no, the lettering keeps changing. Its colours go red, green, orange, light blue-green, and orange again: if they'd all been different it might just have looked deliberate. The spine titles of the second and third books are one irritating inch higher than on the other three. The author's name is broken over two lines as Philip/K.Dick on every spine but the second, where it's Philip K./Dick. A slightly narrower typeface is used for the author's name (only) on the third volume (only). And the grubby airbrushed line which is part of this jacket design crosses the spine a third of an inch lower on the last three books...

June 11, 1965 June 11, 1965 May 6, 1966 Feb 7, 1967 Jun 5, 1967  Mar 22, 1968 Apr 7, 1969 May 9, 1969  May 26, 1969  Jun 1, 1970    Jul 24, 1970

                Dates  are needed for THE SIMUACRA ('64 before CLANS), THE UNTELEPORTED MAN ('66 after CRACK), and THE ZAP GUN (book says Jan. '67-- if this was written simultaneously with THE PENULTIMATE TRUTH, as PKD says, it must have been written at least three years before publication).

THE SHORT STORIES CHRONOLOGY

    It is difficult to find a definitive chronology for when Philip K. Dick wrote his early short stories. Dick's biographers, including Paul Williams, Greg Rickman and Lawrence Sutin, have done most of the work in this area.  In the following table I have put together a chronology from the information in The Encylopedia Dickiana. No doubt there are mistakes in the Chronology and the files themselves. If you spot something, please email me at the address below.

lordrc@philipkdick.com


    The list of dates when PKD's manuscripts arrived at the Scott Meredith Literary Agency (SMLA) is taken from To The High Castle Philip K. Dick: A Life 1928-1962 by Gregg Rickman (TTHC)    For some notes for collectors of PKD material, click here: Collector's Notes
