Dick-head extraordinaire Erik Davis recently sent me some scans of a long interview Vertex magazine did with Philip K Dick. I have no idea what year this came out, but I'm guessing 1980 0r 81 (Henri at The Philip K Dick Bookshelf dates the issue from February 1974 - a big month for PKD). The interview is fantastic, one of the best I've read, exploring Dick's craft, his opinions on contemporary science fiction, LSD, the I Ching, and his characters. And the pictures, well they're worth the price of admission. Click images to enlarge.

This interview was published in February 1974 as per the Interviews Published in Magazines page of my website.
Man, PKD sure was a sexy, sexy man.
Does the article explain why Phil's shirt was unbuttoned?
I have a feeling the photographer staged the open-shirt pics to create an image of Phil as a sexy, Hemingway-esque he-man writer.
Wow. "Sexy Hemingway-esque he-man" PKD is a tough sell. "Slightly corpulent (but still charming) Blake-esque visionary-SUPERman," perhaps...
However, all kidding aside, when they make the PKD action figure line, I DEMAND one of this version of him. Sorta like I cherished my "Hoth ice-world" Han Solo. I would love to facilitate a battle between open-shirt mid-seventies PKD and long bearded, cigar smoking, Palmer Eldrich touting early-sixties PKD. I KNOW who would win. (ANSWER: Horselover Fat would strike them both down with pink beams of light, applied directly to the forehead.)
