    After looking over the titles of Nourse's novels I noticed 
that one of them was titled Bladerunner.  When the movie of the
same name was first out, I heard a rumor that Ridley Scott had 
bought the rights to the name Bladerunner from a book about the 
interstellar smuggling of medical supplies.  

    Since the term Bladerunner never occured in Dick's Do 
Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, this sounded plausible. I was 
slightly disappointed because I thought that it sounded like a 
wonderful premise and would probably never get made into a movie 
because of this.  Now I know that this rumor was true, and who 
wrote Bladerunner.  I'm going out to find it and read it.

    Thanks for the pointer.
