The Books
Pictured here are the two different covers to the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep that have hit the press since 1982's release of the film.  
Though the film has little to do with the original text, it did stay true to the feel of the first book.  It follows the actions of android bounty hunter Rick Deckard as he hunts down a group of escaped androids. 
FYI: The title of the  film was actually borrowed from a book, Blade Runner: (a movie), written by William Burroughs. 
Released in 1982, the Blade Runner Fotonovel is not based on DADoES, but the film. It is decorated with a plethera of stills from the film.  Though it isn't in any way a literary classic, it is a nice piece of BR history to own. 

To find your own copy of the Fotonovel, just venture over to EBAY's and watch the new auctions as they come in. 
 

After a reported conflict with the gentlemen at the  Blade Runner Partnership, the much  anticipated sequel to Blade Runner by K.W. Jeter was released in 1995. 
      The Edge of Human follows in the style of PKD, but also follows the story line from the film. 
     Although at first it was difficult to get into due to so much detail, after the second chapter I was hooked.  The Edge of Human was well worth the wait.  The greatest of the books virtues is it's way of finally answering the question as to if Deckard is a replicant.  This has of course been a great source of contoversy on the news group.
 
When I finished reading The Edge of Human, I already had possession of my copy of Blade Runner 3: REPLICANT NIGHT.  Still following in the footsteps of Dick's style, Jeter once again tells a story filled to the brim with angst and paranoia.  After finishing this book, I can only hope for another installment.  
Replicant Night *fared very well at the book stands, and the paperback edition of  REPLICANT NIGHT appeared in November 1997 and is still in print today.  This leaves a heavy question, will there be more?  
Well, for us BR fans, Mr. Jeter, we sure  hope so Mr. Jeter.
