Science fiction writer Philip K. Dick left behind more than 160 short stories and novels when he died in 1982. Many of his tales have become successful films, such as Blade Runner and Minority Report. Now, four of Dick's novels from the 1960s have been bundled into one book to give a new generation the opportunity to discover his futuristic visions.

Novelist Jonathan Lethem, the editor of the collection, speaks with Jacki Lyden.
