Quantity: 1 available


First printing of the revised and expanded text of THE UNTELEPORTED MAN, adding 30,000 words intended for, but not published in, the original 1966 Ace paperback edition. Note: sf author John Sladek wrote several pages of additional linking material for this version (which replaced several pages of missing manuscript). This 1984 Gollancz hardcover comes with a fine/unread copy of the Berkeley 1983 paperback, PKDS Newsletter no 8 (in which there is an article discussing all of this - ''UNTELEPORTED MAN - missing pages found!'' - including a mention of Sladek's contribution to LIES INC) and the original four pages of typed text written by John Sladek.

''Dick wrote approximately 30,000 extra words for the first book publication in 1966 of his 1964 novella ''The Unteleported Man.'' However, his book editor rejected the expanded text and reprinted the original novella version instead. A newly revised publication of Dick's expanded text was planned towards the end of his life, but he died before its completion. Dick's original expanded version from the 1960s was then used in the posthumous 1983 USA edition of ''The Unteleported Man'' (except for three gaps due to missing manuscript pages, which were published as is). However, Dick's largely complete, revised version of the expanded text was used for the British publication in 1984, which carried the new title LIES, INC. with two remaining manuscript gaps filled by John Sladek). Dick's original ''missing pages'' text for both of these expanded versions was then discovered and published in 1985 in the Philip K. Dick Society Newsletter in 8''.
