    Have you read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? That's the only one I can vouch for--I, too, need some more Dick. Preferably a lengthier read, as that one was a little short.

    Not yet but I am eager to. I am hoping to wait until I can't remember Blade Runner so well. I want to get to a HMV with a decent book selection and spend a gift card there, the one in this city sucks.

    Actually not that bad. For a Star Trek film.

    It's really quite separate from Blade Runner. I'm fuzzy on the details, but there are quite a few differences.

    I know that, but it is more that I will imagine the book in my mind's eye in the styling of the film and that bugs me.

    I have never read a bad book by Dick. Man was a fucking genius.

    Yeah I might dip into one of his books I don't know a thing about but that are meant to be good, like Ubik perhaps, next time I go out looking for books.

    That was the first of his I read, last summer. Pretty crazy book. Crazy awesome. I am reminded of it frequently.

    Its been on my instant queue for, like, forever. I've even watched several episodes of the first season, but I keep forgetting to watch it. I think it's because my wife likes Doctor Who, and I like watching it with her, but I don't think that she would get into the more serious/mature nature of Torchwood.

    Understandable. I like the serious nature of Torchwood (the original two seasons anyway) a whole lot more than most of the Doctor Who reboot.

    Watched Platoon the other night. Kinda disappointed with myself for never seeing it before that. OP updated.

    On the subject of Philip K Dick books; I really enjoyed Clans of the Alphane Moon. Counter-clock World is also good, but I thought it started a bit slow.
