The Question: Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner” is based on a novel by what sci-fi author?

Philip K. Dick
Isaac Asimov
H.G. Wells
Ursula K. LeGuin

Whether you know it or not, you’ve likely seen at least one film based on the work of sci-fi author Philip K. Dick. The short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” provided the narrative bones for Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 movie “Total Recall,” and Steven Spielberg adapted another short story for 2002’s “Minority Report.” But perhaps the most famous film adaptation is Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner” (1982), which is based on Dick’s 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”

The correct answer is Philip K. Dick.
