DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? takes place in a world where San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. The World War has killed millions, driving entire species to extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn't afford one, companies built incredibly realistic fakes: horses, birds, cats, sheep... even humans. Rick Deckard is an officially sanctioned bounty hunter tasked to find six rogue androids -- they're machines, that not only look, sound, and think like humans, but are clever, and most of all, as dangerous as any human.

The original novel DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? was recently picked as one of "49 Books To Read" by Newsweek Magazine.
