Content descriptions

General Note: Made into the movie Blade Runner.
Summary, etc.: By 2021, the World War had killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn't afford one, companies built realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, and even humans. Rick Deckard was a sanctioned bounty hunter whose job was to find rogue androids, and to retire them. But when cornered, androids tended to fight back, with deadly results.
