Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
March 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Love phenomenal fantasy, dystopian futures, and everything in-between? So do we! Join us as we discuss Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, by Philip K. Dick. A masterpiece ahead of its time, a prescient rendering of a dark future, and the inspiration for the blockbuster film Blade Runner. 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.
