Philip K. Dick reissues

I only found out yesterday that Heyne Verlag has been publishing great reissues of the German translations of Philip K. Dick's novels.

My only problem is that I'd like to read the original English version. So when will we finally get the long overdue, equally pretty English edition? The currently available editions in English look more like cheap dime store novels, with cheesy cover designs, poor paper quality and cluttered typography. In fact I bought a few of the German translations [1 2 3 4 5 6 7] just because the design difference really makes up for the language difference.

Yes! I wish the Library of America issued a PKD collection. I got their Lovecraft "Tales" collection for christmas, and it makes me very happy. Utterly gorgeous book.

Wonder of wonders. Just wait for a few months, and what happens?

http://www.usatoday.com/life/books/news/2006-11-28-philipk-dick_x.htm?csp=34 - a Library of America reissue of Philip K. Dick books. Hope you didn't buy too many of the Heyne reissues. (-:
