Any authors/books similar to PKD?

Short question:
I'm sorry if this has been posted, but does are there any authors (or books) similar to Philip K. Dick?

Rant:
So far this year, I've read 24 PKD novels. (My favorites, so far, are Time Out of Joint, Dr. Bloodmoney, Ubik, VALIS, The Cosmic Puppets, The Divine Invasion, Martian Time-Slip.) I want to broaden my horizon, but I can't seem to find an author that's anything like him. What I love about him is the concoction of science fiction and theological (like gnosticism) and philosophical (solipsism or existentialism) themes, topped off with a (seemingly) blurred perception of "reality." I've been on author read-alikes and they leave something to be desired. This page helped a little, but PKD only makes a cameo appearance.

Any recommendations, for author or specific books, would be greatly appreciated!
