Impulse buy alert! Someone is selling Philip K. Dick’s annotated personal Bible on eBay. Here’s the description from the seller:
In 1974, science fiction legend Philip K. Dick experienced a tremendous religious vision and revelation. Renowned cartoonist R. Crumb even illustrated this formative episode in Dick’s life […] Others have written about Dick’s religious transformation, but none, to my knowledge, has consulted this volume: Dick’s inscribed copy of THE NEW ENGLISH BIBLE: NEW TESTAMENT (Oxford University Press, 1963). On the front flyleaf, Dick has made handwritten notations regarding the resurrection, gnosticism, and the casting out of devils.
If you don’t happen to have $6,500 lying around to witness all manner of inscrutable revelation, don’t worry. William Gibson has announced on Twitter that he’s willing to lowball the seller: “I’ll write some really crazy shit in your Bible for *five* grand. Paypal.”
I’m willing to lowball Gibson and write some really crazy shit in your Bible for $4500.
