Do androids dream of dick?

in Hive Book Club3 years ago

Dear All,
forgive me the provocative question, but it is a rhetoric one, because we currently are quite sure that androids do not dream at all!

But how then this mail label came into existence?


Apparently it was unluckyly cut from it´s full title "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by the ingenious author Philip K. Dick (1928 - 1982), published in 1968.

Even if you never heard about this novel, most of you will know the Sci-Fi movie "Blade Runner" from 1982, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford. Dick´s novel was the base of this iconic film (like so many others e.g. "Total Recall" or "Minority Report").

Despite all these films got classics, it is worthwhile reading the books as well!


Have you ever read something from Philip K. Dick?
