It's a Small World
While just about every Dick-head has read Sutin's biography of PKD, Gregg Rickman's is less well known. Apparently Rickman intended to a three volume biography on Dick but only completed this first volume. I learned about this biography from Lethem's notes at the end of the Library of America release and tracked down a copy online. Out of curiousity I googled Rickman's name and soon learned he is a lecturer in the film department at San Francisco State University - the same campus where I work as a lecturer in the English department. I have contacted Rickman and he kindly agreed to meet sometime soon to talk. Quite a coincidence. Stay tuned for more details.
