        Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?

      Doubleday and Company, New York 1968 - First edition of this science fiction cornerstone. Octavo, original cloth. Filmmaker Bertram Berman's copy, with his signature along with his address at CBS on front endpaper, directly beneath the rubber-stamped address of Raritan Productions, Inc. Berman was a program executive and producer with CBS, who in 1968 purchased the option of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Dick, clearly thrilled about the prospect of a film adaptation of one of his works, sent a lengthy letter to Berman full of ideas about how the book could be translated to film. Dick provided Berman with suggestions on everything from casting (Gregory Peck for Deckard; Dean Stockwell for Jack Isidore), tone, plotting.even down to the particular sound the weapons would make. And, of course, "There could be room for more sex." Berman's project failed to get off the ground, and his option expired, opening the way for other parties and, eventually, Ridley Scott. The full text of Dick's May 21, 1968 letter was published in The Philip K. Dick Society Newsletter #18 (August, 1988). Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. An exceptional example with noted provenance. Set in a post-apocalyptic near future, the novel follows Rick Deckard, a bounty hunter who is faced with retiring six escaped androids. At its core, the novel explores the essential issues of the meaning and destiny of humanity. Nominated for the 1968 Nebula Award and basis for the 1982 film Blade Runner directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Gift" -- an episode of the TV show 'Steve Canyon'

      Pegasus Productions Co., Inc, Universal City, CA 1968 - 4to. 33 pp. Shooting script, clean and unmarked. Original printed front wrapper [no rear wrapper] closed with two contemporary brass clasps. SIDNEY CARROLL'S COPY, signed by him on the front wrapper and the first text leaf, and annotated in ink "Complete / Revised. 10/23/58." The series was written by Ray Bradbury and Sidney Carroll and directed by Don Taylor, which aired originally on Saturday December 20th 1958 at 9pm on NBC. It was never repeated in the United States. When ABC aired summer reruns of Steve Canyon in 1960, for some reason this one (and 13 others) never got shown. Considered a lost series for nearly 50 years, 'Steve Canyon' was made with the cooperation of the US Air Force and based on Milton Caniff's famous newspaper adventure comic strip of the same name that ran nonstop from 1947 to 1988. The Milton Caniff Estate released all 34 episodes on DVD in 2008-2013. A scarce survival from the studio, owned by famed scriptwriter Sidney Carroll.
