Because, he thought, if the scanner sees only darkly, the way I myself do, then we are cursed, cursed again and like we have been continually, and we'll wind up dead this way, knowing very little and getting that little fragment wrong too. ― Philip K. tags: a-scanner-darkly. tags: paranoia, reality.

Over a writing career that spanned three decades, PHILIP K. DICK (1928–1982) published 36 science fiction novels and 121 short stories in which he explored the essence of what makes man human and the dangers of centralized power. Toward the end of his life, his work turned toward deeply personal, metaphysical questions concerning the nature of God. Eleven novels and short stories have been adapted to film, notably Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall,Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly. However, A Scanner Darkly is not a story going nowhere. I must say the movie stays pretty faithful to its source and the book does not disappoint.

Philip K Dick explores the psychological horrors lurking in the shadows of sunny 70s California in his cult classic, A Scanner Darkly. Even the book's nighttime is saturated with the electric glare of strip mall lighting and the glow of the television screen. And in a society that never switches off the lights, the dark has become internal. A Scanner Darkly is about a descent into the deep fears of our 24-hour consumer society: the twilight of intellectual and emotional collapse. The darkness of insanity. Dick dissects modern insanity through the cypher of Bob Arctor. Arctor is a man on the fringes of society.
A Scanner Darkly is not Philip K. Dick’s best work but it is a deeply personal statement of the people he knew who lost themselves in the trip. Using the descriptions (and slightly antiquated dialogue of 70’s drug culture) of a surveillance heavy system, Dick explores how we are able to define ourselves and how easily that definition can be altered and obliterated. As one of the classics of science fiction literature, I highly recommend picking up this book. If you wish to see the drug culture from the drug user’s perspective, this book will serve you well as an harrowing introduction.
