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.
