Yesterday we reviewed “The Owl in Daylight,“ the new novel by Tessa Dick. With us today, we’ve got the author herself to discuss the book with us. Tessa, thank you very much for agreeing to come back and visit us again! Some of our newer readers might not have realized this, but you’re actually the first person to be interviewed *twice* by Republibot.

Tessa Dick:
Thank you. It's a pleasure and an honor to come back for another round of questions.

SCIENCE FICTION BOOK REVIEW: “The Owl in Daylight” by Tessa Dick (2008)

Yesterday we talked about “What if Our World is Their Heaven?” a book which transcribed the final interview with Philip K. Dick, in which he gave a detailed outline for the next book he intended to write, “The Own in Daylight.” Alas, he never lived to do so. Today we’re going to talk about “The Own in Daylight,” a book written by Tessa Dick, Phil’s widow, and published last year, and based on her reminiscences of Phil’s own, unwritten story.

It is somewhat sad that the New Agers have claimed Phil as their own, because I don’t think he’d like them. Though frequently a slave of his own loins, Phil was no fan of easy morality, nor easy spiritual answers, and he loathed fakers as servants of the lie, the black iron prison (to use his term) that enslaves us to the only-apparently real. Though he didn’t believe the truth was the same for every person, he did believe there was an objective truth. He was messianic, believing that the second coming was here, and the new Messiah was already on earth.
