Egyptian hieroglyphics

In good company

Guess who's next novel will be published through CreateSpace? No less a personage than Phillip K. Dick. If you follow science fiction as a field, you may be wondering how a dead man can have a next novel. It seems Dick left an unfinished work which his widow has been shopping around. Unable to find a major house, she has decided to go with Amazon's self-publishing arm, Create Space. What's not clear is how much of the novel Dick put down on paper. Was it merely an outline or even just notes? The title is great, though, The Owl in Daylight. Apparently actor Paul Giamatti liked the title so much he's doing a biopic of Dick by the same name.
