The Blade Runner Experience (book)

Posted in Personal by Will on Wednesday, February 15th, 2006 ~ 11pm

I believe that somewhere in this new book about the film Blade Runner, I am quoted. I was one of several newsgroup members who were asked by one of the fourteen contributing writers to share their thoughts about this classic motion picture.

“…The Blade Runner Experience: The Legacy of a Science Fiction Classic, edited by Will Brooker, examines the film in a broad context, examining its relationship to the original novel, the PC game, the series of sequels, and the many films influenced by its style and themes. It investigates Blade Runner online fandom and asks how the film’s future city com-pares to the present-day Los Angeles; and it revisits the film to pose surprising new questions about its characters and their world…”

That’s not my quote; that’s the book’s synopsis. Duh! The chapter on fandom by Dr. Jonathan Alan Gray of the University of California, Berkeley, is where I’d be.

I haven’t ordered it yet because I am still a few hours away from actually having an address! I’m in Boulder but not yet moved in.
