Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Philip K. Dick

In Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? the Earth has been poisoned by war, populated only by those doomed by contamination or too poor to move to Mars.

It is difficult to measure the impact of Philip K. Dick’s work. Not only did his stories and novels win awards and influence an entire generation of science-fiction writers, many of his works have been adapted into film and continue to inspire directors to this day. Alongside Ridley Scott’s genre-changing Blade Runner, inspired by Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the films Total Recall, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly and the recent television series The Man in the High Castle all owe their existence to his imagination. For this special Folio edition we have brought together two classic titles in an appropriately mind-bending format: read one, then turn the book upside down to enter the altered reality of the next.

"Great production values as always, but the pairing of these two titles in the old 'Ace Doubles' format is totally random, perhaps the only connection between them, other than the author, is that they have both been used as the basis for films. The illustrations are competent, but in the case of those for 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep' are, as with several other recent Folio science fiction titles, far too filmic--some re-imagining on the part of the illustrator would have been better. I can't really understand why The Folio Society is not using some of the excellent illustrators in the UK who are accustomed to illustrating SF, such as Jim Burns or Vincent Chong."
