That’s a big list but we’ve already got about half of them. These are the ones we’re still missing:

Second Variety (PKD) -> Scanners
Confessions of a Crap Artist (PKD) -> Confessions d’un Barjo
Impostor (PKD) -> Impostor
The Minority Report (PKD) -> Minority Report
Paycheck (PKD) -> Paycheck
A Scanner Darkly (PKD) -> A Scanner Darkly
The Golden Man (PKD) -> Next
More Stephen King novels than you can shake a stick at

All the PKD are short works so we’ll have to find a collection or 2 that cover them. We have a lot of Stephen King but I think we can still shake a stick at ‘em. Which ones, specifically are we missing?

Thanks!
