I'm looking for good SCIFI books.

I've watched Blade Runner, it's my favorite movie.
I used to watch it while drunk, and never really understood it..
Until recently..... I watched it sober!
Now I'm ready for some reading!

What books do you Blade Runner fans recommend?

First of all, I suggest "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?". An obvious choice being this forum what it is, but a good reading nonetheless. It is the novel that inspired the film Blade Runner, written by the brilliant american science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. Enjoy!

My favorite PKD novel is "Time Out of Joint"

But my most favorite are his short stories which would actually translate better into movies than the novels.
oh when will Hollywood ever learn?...

If you are interested in checking out his short stories, "Selected Stories of Philip K. Dick" is a good place to start.
