A masterpiece ahead of its time, a prescient rendering of a dark future, and the inspiration for the blockbuster film
Blade Runner—now in a sharp new edition with an introduction by New York Times bestselling author Jason M. Hough
By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet.
Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic
simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated
they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the
government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick
Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when
cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force.
