ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN

Hilariously picaresque, epic in scope, alive with the poetry and vigor of the American people, Mark Twain’s story about a young boy and his journey down the Mississippi was the first great novel to speak in a truly American voice. Influencing subsequent generations of writers — from Sherwood Anderson to Twain’s fellow Missourian, T.S. Eliot, from Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner to J.D. Salinger — “Huckleberry Finn,” like the river which flows through its pages, is one of the great sources which nourished and still nourishes the literature of America.

DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP?

“The most consistently brilliant science fiction writer in the world”.
–John Brunner

THE INSPIRATION FOR BLADERUNNER. . . 

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was published in 1968. Grim and foreboding, even today it is a masterpiece ahead of its time.

By 2021, the World War had killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, sheep. . . 

They even built humans.

Emigrees to Mars received androids so sophisticated it was impossible to tell them from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans could wreak, the government banned them from Earth. But when androids didn’t want to be identified, they just blended in. 
Rick Deckard was an officially sanctioned bounty hunter whose job was to find rogue androids, and to retire them. But cornered, androids tended to fight back, with deadly results.

“[Dick] sees all the sparkling and terrifying possibilities. . . that other authors shy away from”.
