Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?/Blade Runner (1968)

Links

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (aka DADOES) was made famous by Ridley Scott's movie Blade Runner (1982), the first movie based on one of Philip K. Dick's book and in turn the movie is probably at the origin of Philip K. Dick's fame today. A number of post-1982 editions of this novel were published under the title of the movie. Note that the date the story takes place was changed from 1992 (January 3, 1992 more precisely) to 2021 in some of the more recent editions to match the date the movie was set. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? with its theme of "what is human?" is a classic Philip K. Dick story and is probably one of his best.
