Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep? (1968)

Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep? was the 39th novel of Philip K. Dick (1928-1982), who wrote mostly in the science fiction genre.   He won the Hugo Award in 1963 for The Man in the High Castle, was nominated twice more and received 5 Nebula Award nominations, including one for Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep?.

He was impoverished for most of his life and died 3 months before Blade Runner, the first film adaptation of his work, was released.

Although the book had been optioned for film for several years, it was a screenplay version written by Hampton Fancher (1938- ) in 1977 that caught the interest of producer Michael Deeley.   David Peoples (1940- ) was brought in to re-write it.
