This anthology consists of 32 writings on TDS audio. Of the works known to exist, only those clearly redundant— for example, a preprint that later became a JAES article— are not included. Three of the writings are, in actuality, authors’ replies to comments on papers previously published in the Journal. For the sake of clarity, the comments are also published here...

...An anthology can be organized in several ways. Since so many of Dick’s articles are interrelated, I have chosen to present them chronologically. This is intended to facilitate the study of readers interested in the historical perspective— the evolvement of the technique and its ramifications— and to present no great hindrance to those wishing to explore specific aspects of TDS. The bibliography, which covers Dick's known works and related writings, has been divided into major subject categories and is chronological within those categories.
