Philip K. Dick and Robert A. Heinlein

Διαβάζοντας για την ζωή του Philip K. Dick έμαθα κάτι πολύ ενδιαφέρον και περίεργο. Όπως αναφέρεται στην Wikipedia, στις δύσκολες στιγμές του ο Dick είχε την ηθική και οικονομική συμπαράσταση του Robert A. Heinlein. Όπως αναφέρει ο Philip Dick, δεν είχε συναντήσει πότε τον Heinlein, δεν συμφωνούσε με τις απόψεις των βιβλίων του [δίκιο είχε] αλλά η βοήθεια του ήταν ανεκτίμητη!

Ο ίδιος ο Philip K. Dick λέει: “Several years ago, when I was ill, Heinlein offered his help, anything he could do, and we had never met; he would phone me to cheer me up and see how I was doing. He wanted to buy me an electric typewriter, God bless him—one of the few true gentlemen in this world. I don’t agree with any ideas he puts forth in his writing, but that is neither here nor there. One time when I owed the IRS a lot of money and couldn’t raise it, Heinlein loaned the money to me. I think a great deal of him and his wife; I dedicated a book to them in appreciation. Robert Heinlein is a fine-looking man, very impressive and very military in stance; you can tell he has a military background, even to the haircut. He knows I’m a flipped-out freak and still he helped me and my wife when we were in trouble. That is the best in humanity, there; that is who and what I love.”
