Cover of the Day
They translated Dick into Catalonian? This is the greatest cover of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? I have ever seen. At first I thought it must be an android on the cover, but then I remembered Dick's description of Rick Deckard:
"...In the irregular light the bounty hunter seemed a medium man, not impressive. Round face and hairless; like a clerk in a bureaucratic office. Methodical but not informal. Not a demi-god in shape."
I believe that's the only real description of Deckard in the book, pretty sparse. Perhaps Ridley Scott should have considered Telly Savalas as Deckard:
Dick suggested Gregory Peck to the studio.
It's hard not to picture him as Harrison Ford.
Who would you cast?
