Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?: The...
A masterpiece ahead of its time, a forward-looking portrayal of a dark future and the inspiration for the blockbuster movie Blade Runner
By 2021, World War II had killed millions of people, threatened extinction and drove humanity from the planet. Those who still desire a creature, and for those who can not afford it, companies have built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They even built people. Mars migrants get androids so advanced that they can not distinguish themselves from true men or women. Fearing the chaos that these man-made humans can do, the government banishes them from the earth. Unauthorized androids live undetected among humans. Rick Deckard, an officially recognized bounty hunter, is tasked with finding and retiring rogue androids. But when Androids are cornered, they defend themselves – with deadly force.
