Library of America Unveils 2nd Philip K. Dick Omnibus

Jonathan Lethem, the editor of the Library of America compilation of Philip K. Dick‘s best novels from the 1960s, will be speaking about Dick at a Cooper Union lecture this Thursday night—and the Library has announced that it will reveal the contents of the second volume of PKD novels that evening. I guessed so well the first time, I’m going to try again: A Maze of Death; Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said, A Scanner Darkly; and… at this point, I can’t decide whether the Library is going to reach back to 1969′s Galactic Pot-Healer, or ahead to 1981′s VALIS. Instinct, though, tells me it’s the former, because if you’re going to run with VALIS, you really ought to do it with The Divine Invasion and The Transmigration of Timothy Archer as a “trilogy.” Let’s see if I’m right!

Update: A source at the Library says I’m “batting .500,” and confirms that the volume will include five novels spanning the 1960s and 1970s.
