Douglas Adams
Ray Bradbury
Phillip K. Dick

Answer: Phillip K. Dick

When it comes to blockbuster film adaptations of Sci-Fi novels and stories, it’s tough to hold a candle to the track record of Sci-Fi writer Phillip K. Dick. His novels have served as the basis for such publicly and critically acclaimed works as Blade Runner (adapted from the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall (adapted from short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale”), A Scanner Darkly (adapted from the novel bearing the same name), and Minority Report (adapted from short story “The Minority Report”).

Adaptations of Dick’s novels and short stories have amassed over one billion dollars at the box office.
