Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
Gollancz (trade, 215 pages)
Publication date: 8 March 2007, UK
    This and the following 5 titles are published as 25th anniversary editions, marking a quarter century since the death of PKD. This novel was the basis for the movie Blade Runner. If you haven't read the book, it's very different from the movie, and in my opinion much more successful as art -- and I liked the film.
