Review:

"Sammon is a dedicated chronicler and aficionado who has spent more than 200 hours chatting to the key players behind this seminal sci-fi classic. Were quite happy to direct all future enquiries to this mammoth opus, because we're confident it can answer every one of them." (Neil Smith TOTAL FILM)

"This epic account of the making of Blade Runner covers the film and its various versions in the kind of detail that is best described as all consuming. A remarkable piece of journalism, this cannot be faulted on any level, and will be a must for like-minded obsessives." (Howard Maxford FILM REVIEW)

"No detail seems too slight to be included in this monumental account of the realisation of Ridley Scott's dystopian version of Philip K Dick's 'do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep'." (THE SCOTSMAN)

"One simply cannot fault the quantity and quality of Sammon's legwork. This is a book which will fascinate not only any Bladerunner fan, but also those with a keen interest in the film making process generally." (Eddie Robson DEATHRAY)

"This tome is far from something solely for the fan obsessed with Blade Runner - it is also a wonderful insight into the movie making process generally." (Andrew Baldwin HUDDERSFIELD DAILY EXAMINER)

Paul M Sammon¿s meticulously researched account often feels like a particularly extensive DVD extra. For fans of Ridley Scott¿s masterpiece, this is essential reading. (DW: Total Sci-Fi)

"An unmissable account of the film's extraordinary history." (BIRMINGHAM MAIL)

"As dramatic as any thriller, the story behind this extraordinary achievement in film-making is as compelling as the action on the screen." (Shari Low DAILY RECORD)

Book Description:

A moment-by-moment account of the making of a cult classic.
