I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. As an avid fan of the film Blade Runner, I confess that I have never read the story on which it was based, or any other work by PKD. I have also been unaware of any opinions about his lifestyle, or personality. I do not read much sci-fi (the ‘Dune’ novels were an exception) and I never read biographies, as I like to leave some mystery about well-known people. This is neither of those genres of course, but I am sure it will be of great interest to those interested in Dick’s work, and that period in California.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I haven’t read a lot of PKD but I’ve read the book Blade Runner is based on and although they did a great job, there is much more about the world and more detail (I remember a mood machine that as a psychiatrist fascinated me). I don’t read a lot of science-fiction either but like you, there are exceptions. (And I’m reviewing one next week). Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Olga. I’m very intrigued by your review. I was a big fan of the Blade Runner movie. However, that was the extent of my acquaintance with the writer of the original book. I had no idea that Philip K. Dick was perceived as described. The story sounds fascinating. TGIF hugs.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, I didn’t know much about him (although after reading some of his work I remember having had a look at a couple of articles). It’s a fascinating book for sure. Have a fantastic weekend! (I’m off to the book fair tomorrow but I’ll be sure to catch up with your serial as soon as I can).

  3. Hello Olga! I enjoy Maer’s style of writing. I’m not usually a memoir reader but I have been known to read outside my usual genres. I’d be interesting to read about a side of PKD few know about. Thank you!

    1. Thanks, Vashti. I don’t read a lot of memoirs but I’ve read some cracking ones and this is one of them. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Maer. It’s been a pleasure, and you’re totally right about my readers. They are awesome!
