My first thoughts about The Transmigration of Timothy Archer was what a terrible shame, what a great loss that Philip K. Dick died so young. His voice had matured in the 80s but his imagination and his speculative genius was still very much intact and vibrant as in the 50s. My second thought was (and I have wondered this same thought after reading other books by him) why in the world was he not more popular in his own time. He was ahead of his time, way ahead of his time. Dan Brown’s The Da Vi [...]

This is a re-read for me and perhaps not exactly my favorite of his last and greatest sequence of linked novels that began with VALIS, but it is still profound and beautiful.Truly, it is a very good book, but it stands as both a major departure from PKD's normal fiction. That's to say, it's a novel that explores all the same themes that he's is known for, but he does it in a very firmly grounded and mainstream way that very much does NOT touch upon his more traditional SF style.Suicide, madness, [...]

“No single thing abides; and all things are fucked up.” ― Philip K. Dick, The Transmigration of Timothy ArcherTransmigration of Timothy Archer was brilliant in parts, very engaging, but there were also pieces that just didn't quite fit. I'm willing to give PKD a lot of credit for attempting, so late in his life, a 'mainstream novel'. Ultimately, however, I couldn't quite swallow the whole book (oh me of little faith). I'm not sure if it was a dissatisfaction with it not living up to my exp [...]

The Transmigration of Timothy Archer: Explores madness, suicide, faith, the occultOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteraturePhilip K Dick’s Radio Free Albemuth (1985) and VALIS (1981) were strange but moving attempts to make sense of his bizarre religious experiences in 1974 when a hyper-rational alien mind contacted him via a pink laser from space. He then wrote The Divine Invasion (1981) and The Transmigration of Timothy Archer (1982), both loosely connected titles in the VALIS TRILOGY, althoug [...]

Some notes upon finishing the book.This is NOT the third book in the "VALIS Trilogy". It is what the author says it is in What If Our World Is Their Heaven, a literary novel that took more out of him to write than four SF novels. He had something to get out about life in general, and his experience with Bishop James Pike in particular, and this is it, a thing in itself. There is nothing here that requires the kind of suspension of disbelief demanded by genre SF. All is derived from conventional [...]

see Dick. See Dick run. See Dick write about the sacred quest to escape one's body and transcend the narrow human perception of experience through the ongoing search for the essential logos via the ingestion of psychedelic mushrooms while retracing the steps of the Christ. (pant)

Well, I hate to say this but this was my least favorite of the VALIS books. My guess is because it was too mainstream and not enough far-out weird stuff. So even though a lot of the religious stuff bored me (mostly because a lot of it is just over my head), the story itself with Angel, Tim, and all the other characters, did not fill in the rest of story with the wacky dialogue and interactions that I enjoyed in the previous two books. Yeah, there were some great scenes, but just not enough to pu [...]

“The fixed idea of madness is fascinating, if you are inclined toward viewing with interest something that is palpably impossible yet nonetheless exists.” (p.97)The Transmigration of Timothy Archer is the final novel Philip K. Dick completed before his untimely death in March 1982. Often listed as the third part of the VALIS Trilogy, it bears little relation to the first two VALIS books. (Dick’s intended third part of the trilogy, The Owl in Daylight, never progressed beyond a rough outlin [...]

It is like information theory; it is noise driving out signal. But it is noise posing as signal so you do not even recognize it as noise. The intelligence agencies call it disinformation, something the Soviet Bloc relies on heavily. If you can float enough disinformation into circulation you will totally abolish everyone's contact with reality, probably your own included.Putin seeks religious help to quell Russian dissent

Easier to pay attention to than The Divine Invasion, but still heavy on the Sunday School, I find myself missing the mind-trip of the previous novels. PKD seems to handle women better as first-person female protags. The best parts are when Angel philosophizes about books and records.

wow. well, this is pretty fresh in my mind, and it's been a couple of weeks. that doesn't surprise me though because the ideas that dick toyed with in his last cycle of books are to me the most compelling, indeed the most disturbing and challenging to my mind. dick's narrator angel archer is one of his most resonant, matter-of-fact, and yes, human. she is a rare accomplishment in terms of his development of a female character, though this may well be because she has his own very human voice, or [...]

Imagine what it would be like to meet Philip K Dick at a dinner party in the mid 70's. He seems to be the person who would dominate a conversation, but in a good way. Filled with ideas, stories, convoluted connections and theories. After a few drinks I'd think "This guy is a genius!". But then when I woke up the next morning, I'm not sure if any of it would make any sense, but still I'd invite him over again to hear what he had to say. What a character he must have been! What a loss that he died [...]

PDK's swan song, as it turned out. It is also his most life-affirming book he ever wrote. Part biographical, part literary fiction and part paranormal mystery and 100% Masterpiece, this book is told from the perspective of a woman, something Dick had never done before. That he pulls it off so easily is a testament to the narrative powers that Dick possessed. Sadly, he died weeks after completing this outstanding book. The plot twist is particularly to die for.

A woman, you say? Narrating a Philip K. Dick novel? Wait a minute. Wait. A. Minute. For one, everyone knows that the only first-person narrators allowed aboard the Philip K. Dick train are fictional characters known as Philip K. Dick. For another, the guy's misogynist tendencies cannot be missed. And I can't say I'm a fan of them, but since he tells cool stories, I'm willing to bear with him. For the record, he does a decent job with the woman. Philip K. Dick didn't make his name on his characte [...]

I was surprised by the tone of the book, which is not typical for Dick, when I started reading. But as I adjusted to it, I really started to like it. There is an honesty and a nakedness to Angel Archer's narration that is startling and difficult, yet simultaneously extremely charming. You can't help but love Angel, not in any sort of physical way but in a deep emotional way. Unlike Horselover Fat in VALIS, who is also a stand-in for Dick the way Angel is in this novel, Angel is honest with the r [...]

This book is a critique directed against the over-educated and those who find identity in books. Angel's life is education without experience. Angel's vast education makes her view reality with an "its all been done before" attitude. She has a sickening rationality towards the beliefs of others. It shows the modern life of a hyper-rationalist. The seriousness clouds her mind from any mystical elevation. Such a mindset devalues the beauty of life. It is about a woman who was ruined by her educati [...]

This book, the third part of a trilogy beginning with Valis, was nowhere near as mindblowingly wacky as Valis. Rather it was bitter and full of denial. The common thread between Valis and Transmigration is that someone is confronted with the reality of the supernatural, life after death, the resurrection, and they turn their back on it. The major problem in Transmigration is the coldness of the narrator. It sucks to finish reading this book, because even when confronted with everything she has w [...]

This is a challenging, yet compelling third book of the VALIS trilogy, although it stands alone as a novel. It's an empowering and intellectual glimpse into the interpretation of madness, theology and philosophical illusion. Mind twisting, thought provoking and at times disturbing; the obsession with God and metaphysics, schizophrenia and suicide, and the characters themselves drove this book for me and it has definitely made me think and perceive intellect in a new way. Absolutely fantastic

One of my very favorite books, since way back when I first read it in 97 or 98. Not really "sci-fi", and although it's technically the third book in the Valis trilogy, you don't need to read the others to read this, and there aren't any spoilers for the first two books, it's standalone. Deals with a lot of the emotions around people you love dying.

Cuando le conté a mi hermano que estaba leyendo este libro lo primero que me preguntó era si habia leído los otros antes. Aún no me queda claro cuáles otros ni por qué habría que leerlos antes. El libro me atrapó fácil, partiendo porque lo narra un personaje femenino. Angel, además de ser adicta a las metáforas es una mujer culta, estudiosa, profesional y pasa que es nuera del obispo Timothy Archer. Ella narra, cavila y construye en parte la transmigración de Tim. Tim es un hombre ad [...]

This is a brilliant series of novels woven together as a trilogy with a non-apparent thread. Full of compassion, spirituality, madness, humor, the eerie, and truly prophetic technology, this is science fiction I can unapologetically embrace. I'm embarrassed to have never read them earlier, but I don't think I had the requisite philosophical, literary, religious and current technology experiences to fully appreciate them. Yet they are a feast entirely consumed in a couple sittings. Each part of t [...]

A criticism often levelled at Dick is that his female characters are badly written, and it’s hard to deny it. Particularly in his earlier work, the female characters, when they exist at all, are an amalgamation of every dreadful trope regarding women in popular fiction. They are poorly developed, flimsy. They are nagging wives, whores, and addicts. The lecturer who took the SF module I did at uni (we read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, which is a fairly tame offender) pointed to his suc [...]

Terza e ultima variazione sul tema del divino che incontra l'umano, La trasmigrazione di Timothy Archer è anche l'ultimo romanzo compiuto di Dick, arrestato nella sua produzione letteraria da una morte prematura. Eppure salta all'occhio la singolare coincidenza: proprio lui, che tutta la vita aveva cercato di affermarsi come scrittore mainstream, senza successo, ripiegando quindi su una più renumerativa produzione fantascientifica, all'apice della sua ultima grande opera abbandona per sempre l [...]

I am always delighted by an author that can draw on a vast catalogue of historical fact and philosophy and reincarnate it into a wholly new world of possibility. Long ago I read Valis, the first volume of Philip K. Dick’s final Trilogy and it stood as a most unique example of the art of reinvention. It was a book that held a special place for me that was hard to define. This was probably because its structure allowed me to see the epistemology of religion unfixed and fluid, redrawn by the skil [...]

One of the most amazing coincidence is when you pick up a book which you not just wanted to read, but needed to, at that particular time and place. I picked up this book because the cover vaguely described it to be a book about "faith and belief". Keeping the hollow and naive description by the publisher aside, the fact that this was Dick's last ever published book, and a non- sci-fi at that, was enough to convince me to read it.Go read this if you have ever felt tormented by lack(or abundance) [...]

The Transmigration of Timothy Archer is the final volume in the Valis trilogy—previously there was Valis [volume 1] and The Divine Invasion [volume 2]. There is also Radio Free Albemuth but it is not strictly part of the trilogy—there may be some debate about this. The sense that this is a trilogy could be debated as well. The books do not overlap narratively and the only element that does is the concept of VALIS. VALIS stands for, Vast Active Living Intelligence System. The ‘system’ sta [...]

La última novela de Philip K. Dick sigue la estructura establecida en VALIS, pero sin un toque de ciencia ficción, es un trabajo mucho más enfocado a las relaciones que las personas tienen con otras personas que no comparten el mismo paradigma de la realidad. El libro se enfoca en Angel Archer y su relación con varias personas entre ellos su suegro Tim, que resulta ser un obispo bastante bien colocado en la sociedad americana pero con sus propios problemas que empiezan a florecer al consegui [...]

La obra final dePhilip K. DICK es una bella declaración acerca de la espiritualidad y la pérdida de seres queridos. No contiene una sola frase que sea de ciencia ficción, todo lo contrario. Otra característica inesperada es que el narrador es un personaje femenino, siendo, hasta donde recuerdo, el único caso entre los escritos de DICK. La novela está bellamente escrita, es clara y directa, a diferencia de "VALIS" y "The Divine Invasion", con las que esta obra integra una trilogía. Al tiem [...]

This novel of half-baked ideas is more closely associated with Dick's own life than any other I've read to date. The Tim Archer character is indeed based on Bishop Pike, a liberal Episcopal Bishop whom I listened to a great deal on the old Jerry Williams radio talk show during high school and who was actually a friend of Dick's. Pike also had an affair. Pike also had been involved in spiritualist activities after the death of his son precipitated a series of poltergeist-like events. For this and [...]
