"You will be required to do wrong no matter where you go. It is the basic condition of life, to be required to violate your own identity." Science Fiction Book Club edition of sci-fi master Philip K. Dick’s influential Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? First published in 1968, Dick’s best-known novel follows android bounty hunter Rick Deckard as he is tasked with "retiring" fugitive androids in post-apocalyptic San Francisco. Ahead of its time, the existential and political themes the novel explores are with time only becoming increasingly relevant. Dust jacket design by American artist Donato Giancola, who often goes mononymously by "Donato." Giancola, who specializes in sci-fi and fantasy narrative realism illustration art, says that he "focused on sexuality" for the cover, "as it is a pivotal point in the novel." (We must admit it's the cover that caught our eye.) Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #1986
