    Minority Report was a short story, not a full-length novel as stated earlier. As witnessed by your list, Hollywood has latched on to him and attempted to squeeze all the science-fictiony goodness out of his corpse, but without a clue as to what he really was writing about. Scriptwriters like to view his fascination with the unknowable connection between mind and "reality" as simple plot twists and drop the philosophical baggage. Minority Report was better than I thought it would be, but different from Dick's original. I shudder to think what the highly personal A Scanner Darkly will be like.
