Dick's The Man in the High Castle (1965 [1962]) is an example of what is
sometimes regarded as a sub-genre of science fiction, the alternative history

Dick was one of the very best of these writers – but eventual recognition was to
prove hard-won and long delayed. Philip Kindred Dick, born in Chicago in 1928,

knowledge and an intimidating ability to absorb information. He had a thorough
grounding in philosophy, psychology and religion. He was studying Jung before
he was fashionable, along with the thinkers of the German Enlightenment,
Gnosticism, ...
