Back Was Blade Runner based on a book and are there any sequels?

Yes, it was based on "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" (DADoES), by Philip K. Dick. He did not write any sequels as such, but several of his other books do explore some of the same themes. Do remember that Blade Runner was "inspired" by DADoES more than a straight book-to-movie. The principal themes are the same, but there are many significant differences as well. If you have never read any PKD stories, then it is time you started!
There is also a comic version of the film, (with a number of differences). I'll scan it in one day for presentation on this site.
There are some "sequels" written by K. W. Jeter. He was authorised to write these sequels, which make some attempt at tying together the disparate threads of DADoES and BR. Many BR fans think very little of these books.
Note: For your convenience, I have added links to - and where you can find further information and reviews about each of thesebooks. A few might not be available at one or other place and thus the corresponding link will be dead. Pictures may not always be the same on UK and US covers.


Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep book

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep

The book that inspired the movie. Different to the movie, but a brilliant book in its own right.

This is the single issue version of the above. Again, available at auction sites like eBay, or comic collector stores. Basically the same story as the film, but with some interesting variations.

The comic is now on-line right here on BRmovie!

Blade Runner - A Story of the Future

Paperback - "Illustrated with More Than 60 Color Photographs, Based on the Movie Starring Harrison Ford". Story adaptation by Les Martin and published in 1982, this is very much like the film, with slight variations. A fascinating story and great photos, if you want a copy, your best bet is eBay.

One day I might scan in my copy, but that would mean breaking the book's spine - and for a BR collectible, that is a serious thing ...

Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human book

Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human bookBlade Runner 2: The Edge of Human

K. W. Jeter attempts to join the threads of DADoES together with those of Blade Runner and gets carried away with himself.

Many BR fans actually hate these books. Jeter himself does not help matters when he is so deprecating towards BR fans. Just because he was a friend of Dick's doesn't mean he can write like Dick.

Blade Runner 3: Replicant NightBlade Runner 3: Replicant Night

More Jeter BR. The story is quite silly and rehashes a lot of old stuff.

Some of Jeter's original stories are not bad. It makes one wonder why he doesn't write more original stuff instead of languishing so much in the Blade Runner, Star Wars and Star Trek universes.

Jeter keeps on writing them.

Blade Runner: A Movie

Warning: This is not a Blade Runner book. This is the book title that inspired the name. Just thought you might be interested.

The story itself is a little disjointed and opinions on it tend to be polarised.

Actually, this book is a rewrite of a book by Alan Nourse, also carrying the name Bladerunner! (Now out of print.)
