Après une première tentative, la correspondance entre Philip K. Dick et Linda Levy est de nouveau en vente. Pour mémoire, Linda Levy est la jeune fille aux cheveux noirs, objet de cristallisation de bien des fantasmes de Dick.
La collection est bien évidemment composée entièrement de pièces uniques, vendues à un prix exorbitant (mais quel autre prix est-il possible de fixer ?)
