Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to Publish Philip K. Dick's Exegesis
Posted on April 30, 2010
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has acquired North American publishing rights to Philip K. Dick's two-volume unpublished journals, The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick. Author Philip K. Dick wrote 45 novels and 120 short stories during his career. He won the Hugo Award and the John W. Campbell Award, among other honors. His works have been made into films, including Minority Report and Blade Runner. Bruce Nichols, Publisher of Adult Trade at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, says the Exegesis, "serves as the foundation for ideas and themes that would appear throughout the work of this visionary author."
Philip K. Dick's daughters, Laura Leslie and Isa Dick Hackett, saidd, "We are excited by this opportunity to work with Bruce and his team at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. We look forward to the re-launch and reinvigoration of our father's backlist. The publication of The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick has been a goal of ours for years, and we're thrilled to find a publisher who shares this goal, embracing Jonathan's Lethem's and Pamela Jackson's edit."
The Exegesis will be edited by Jonathan Lethem and Pamela Jackson and published in Fall 2011. HMH has also acquired rights to 39 titles from the author's backlist, which will be published in paperback under the Company's Mariner imprint beginning fall, 2011.
