Title: The Unteleported Man Title Record # 9601
Author: Philip K. Dick
Date: 1983-07-00
Type: NOVEL
Series: The Unteleported Man
Webpages: Wikipedia-EN
Language: English
Note: Dick wrote approximately 30,000 extra words for the first book publication in 1966 of his 1964 novella "The Unteleported Man." However, his book editor rejected the expanded text and reprinted the original novella version instead. A newly revised publication of Dick's expanded text was planned towards the end of his life, but he died before its completion. Dick's original expanded version from the 1960s was then used in the posthumous 1983 USA edition of "The Unteleported Man" (except for 3 gaps due to missing manuscript pages, which were published as is). However, Dick's largely complete, revised version of the expanded text was used for the British publication in 1984, which carried the new title "Lies, Inc." (with 2 remaining manuscript gaps filled by John Sladek). Dick's original "missing pages" text for both of these expanded versions was then discovered and published in 1985 in the Philip K. Dick Society Newsletter #8. In 2004, the novel was reprinted in the USA using Dick's later revised "Lies, Inc." version of the text, and corrected for the first time to include the "missing pages" text rather than Sladek's bridging text. (However, there has not been a similar, corrected reprint of Dick's original 1960s expanded text.)

1984 • Publisher's Note: This novel has a complicated history. It was first published in magazine form in 1964, under the title The Unteleported Man. For its book publication, in 1966, Philip Dick wrote a further 30,000 words, but in the event this extra material was not used. The published book was the same as the magazine version. Many years later, Dick reread the unpublished material and arranged for publication in the USA of the complete edition, with extensive revisions. Then he died, suddenly and tragically, in 1982. At the time there was no evidence that he had made the intended revisions, and so the novel was reissued in 1983 in the USA in its full 1966 version, with gaps in the text where four manuscript pages had gone missing during the long years in storage. Then, in November 1983, while British publication was being arranged, Dick's literary executor found among the author's papers his revised and retitled typescript. It is this version which is published here for the first time. Two gaps, each of one manuscript page, still remained, and for this edition John Sladek—an author Dick greatly admired—has written short linking passages to create a continuous narrative. For the benefit of literary detectives, Sladek's contributions are to be found on pp. 143 and 168-9. [from page 199 of the 1984 Gollancz edition] • Dick's original "missing pages" text for both of these expanded versions was then discovered and published in 1985 in the Philip K. Dick Society Newsletter #8. In 2004, the novel was reprinted in the USA using Dick's later revised "Lies, Inc." version of the text, and corrected for the first time to include the "missing pages" text rather than Sladek's bridging text.
