The android book

I recently wrote a book about the Philip K Dick Android. The genre is narrative non fiction. In other words, it reads somewhat like fiction, although it’s not. US/Canada: How to Build An Android: The True Story of Philip K Dick’s Robotic Resurrection
UK: Losing the Head of Philip K Dick: A Bizarre but True Tale of Androids, Kill Switches and Left Luggage
Australia: Lost in Transit: The Strange Story of the Philip K Dick Android
Italy: La Strana Storia Dell Androide Philip K Dick
