Philip Kindred Dick was born on December 16, 1928 in Chicago and made his writing debut in the later period of the Golden Age of Science Fiction. Along with his contemporaries such as Asimov, Bradbury and Clarke, the writing styles and themes of the Golden Age of Science Fiction evolved into what became known as the New Wave of Science Fiction (1950s to 1970s) where the earlier fantasy themes of the genre began to merge with real life technological advancements overshadowed by war. It is during this New Wave that PKD, gained notoriety with his speculative (and sometimes cautionary) works centering around humanity’s relationship with new and ever-advancing technology of the times, while often providing a political subtext alluding to the environment of the Cold War era.
