Do Dead Writers Dream of New York Times Editorials?
Philip K. Dick, the author of numerous science fiction classics including Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, which was the basis for the film Blade Runner, has been recognized in a New York Times editorial today. While I don't know that I'd put him above some of my literary heroes such as the recently departed Kurt Vonnegut, Dick had a knack for telling wonderfully engaging stories set in surprisingly recognizable futures. Give this a read, and after you've done that, enjoy one of his books or short stories.
