They're working on Ubik?!

If you're a science fiction fan, track this blog to the L.A. Times article on Philip K. Dick's legacy. "Right now, Hackett (note: Dick's daughter) said, there are six film projects that are in various stages of negotiation or development, including advanced talks that would finally bring one of his signature works, 'Ubik,' to life as a feature film."

Keep your fingers crossed.

Ubik, in case you haven't read it, is the ur-god of every science fiction novel whose setting is in cyberspace from William Gibson's masterpieces to the vastly overrated Snow Crash.
