Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and A Scanner Darkly are two of Philip K. Dick’s most celebrated novels. In this celebrated Folio Society collector’s edition, these classics of dystopian science fiction are presented in a mind-bending format – two illustrators, two covers, one spectacular book.
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.
