spoiler space for new balde runner books



good enough, not as if many people would read them i think.

have you read K.W. Jeter's <i think that's him> newer books "edge of
human" and "replicant night"?
in the first one, right at the end, deckard meets up with a guy who says
that he is the original deckard, and that the cop deckard is a
replicant. haven't read the second one yet. the 'original' is some kind
of military guy and it looks like he is a rebel against some corp or
government. can't say for sure, been a while since i read it and it's in
of course, this is someone else's vision of the blade runner story, and
not philip dick's.
