Rare PKD Photo of the Day
Here's another photo courtesy of Anne Dick. I'm pretty sure PKD's in the same corner as the one seen in this photo. Anne doesn't remember very much about his cigar smoking so I'm guessing he wasn't a particularly heavy smoker. I do remember reading that PKD enjoyed smoking cigars with Tim Powers and Kevin Jeter. According to Linda Levy, Tim worked in a tobacco store when he and PKD were hanging out. PKD was a snuff man (according to Sutin he preffered Dean Swift); it was something he got into when married to Anne, and according to Sutin, it became 'a dominant passion' in his life. He had cans of it everywhere; the stuff was perpetually swirling in a particulate cloud around him, shaking forth from his clothes. I don't know what else to say; sometimes a picture of a guy smoking a cigar is just a picture of a guy smoking a cigar.
