Luke Rhinehart is the acclaimed author of nine works of fiction, including most notably THE DICE MAN. In 1995, the BBC called that book one of the fifty most influential books of the last half of the twentieth century,” and Loaded Magazine honored it in 1999 by naming it “Novel of the Century”. In 2016, the London Telegraph named it one of the 50 great cult books of the last hundred years. Although first published 40 years ago, the book has been rediscovered in the 21st century, being published or republished in more than 60 countries and translated into 26 languages. It is currently selling more copies than ever and, amazingly, this resurgence of interest is led by young people–readers under 25.
His books SEARCH FOR THE DICE MAN, WHIM and THE BOOK OF THE DIE are also comic and philosophical dramatizations of his ideas, although each unique in its own right. In addition, over the years dozens of pieces of music have been inspired by Luke’s ideas, including “Six Different Ways” by The Cure; “Dice Man” by The Fall; “Random I Am” by Millencolin; “Slaughter Of The Soul” by At the Gates; “X, Y and Zee” by Pop Will Eat Itself; “Black Diary” by Jameson; and “Such a Shame” by Talk Talk.
