Do androids dream of electric sheep? by Philip K Dick( Book )

7 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in Japanese and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inspiration for Blade Runner. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was published in 1968. Grim and foreboding, even today it is a masterpiece ahead of its time. 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 incredibly realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, sheep. . . They even built humans. Emigrees to Mars received androids so sophisticated it was impossible to tell them from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans could wreak, the government banned them from Earth. But when androids didn't want to be identified, they just blended in. Rick Deckard was an officially sanctioned bounty hunter whose job was to find rogue androids and retire them. But cornered, androids tended to fight back, with deadly results

Nao ju by Kurt Vonnegut( Book )

7 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in Japanese and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vonnegut définit ainsi son roman: "une histoire sur les villes à l'abandon et le cannibalisme spirituel et l'inceste et la solitude et l'absence d'amour et la mort et le reste". Il s'agit plus précisément d'un "essaifiction" à mi-chemin entre la littérature d'anticipation (la politique-fiction) et le recueil de pensées, avec une forte composante autobiographique et une bonne dose d'humour noir et paisible. Accessible aux grands adolescents

Happy birthday, Wanda June : a play by Kurt Vonnegut( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in Japanese and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic plot of the book is a man who used to be considered a hero, but after an eight year absence from society, comes back and sees that he is no longer seen as he used to be. In this play Vonnegut expresses his protest of the Vietnam War. Vonnegut does this with the character of Harold Ryan and his family. Harold Ryan symbolizes a Vietnam veteran who comes back to the States after fighting. Just like the Vietnam veterans, Harold is seen as a warmongering brute by his wife. She now is interested in a man who doesn't believe in violence and is an intellectual. --Christopher Pantano at Amazon.com
