From Blade Runner to A Scanner Darkly, via Total Recall, Screamers, Impostor, Paycheck and Minority Report, the legacy of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick has revolutionized Hollywood.

Counterfeit Worlds is the definitive history of all the adaptations of Dick's work, not only the films but also TV series, radio plays, even operas and computer games. Beginning with a concise biography of Dick, acclaimed writer Brian J. Robb looks at the evolution and production of each project in depth, along the way uncovering a wealth of new information, including the stories behind the fascinating unmade film Ubik (with a screenplay by Dick himself), and the stillborn sequels to Total Recall and the legendary Blade Runner.
