At the time of his death, Dick's work was generally known to only science fiction readers, and many of his novels and short stories were out of print.

The Library of America has issued two collections of Dick's novels. The first, published in June 2007, contained "The Man in the High Castle", "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch", "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and "Ubik", and was the first time science fiction was included in the LOA canon.

At least nine films have been adapted from Dick's work, with "Blade Runner" (1982) widely considered a "masterpiece". [cite news | last = Edelstein | first = David | title = Philip K.

Five recurring philosophical themes in Dick's work have been classified by Philip K. Dick scholar Erik Davis: false realities, human vs. machine, entropy, the nature of God, and social control.
