Beyond the Door is a story that asks and answers the question: what lives beyond the door? And is it dangerous? Philip K. Dick was an American science-fiction novelist, short-story writer and essayist. His first short story, 'Beyond Lies the Wub,' was published shortly after his high school graduation. Some of his most famous short stories were adapted for film, including 'The Minority Report,' 'Paycheck,' 'Second Variety' (adapted into the film Screamers) and 'We Can Remember It For You Wholesale' (adapted into the film Total Recall).
