Would you close the door to all these science fiction panhandlers?

With trembling tears in my eyes I saw just very recently that, lo and behold, Philip K. Dick was imparted an honor that Lovecraft mine has long had the opportunity to enjoy – the inclusion, that is, into the portfolio of The Library of America.

As the final sentence has it in Michael Jones’ review article –

His prose was a little flaky and his genre a bit dodgy (so true, so very true of Lovecraft, as well), but, as a character in “The Man in the High Castle” says, “He told us about our own world … This, what’s around us now. (May Lovecraft please never and in no passage ever tell us about our own world…)”
