Kevin Wayne (K. W.) Jeter shared a meaningful friendship with the celebrated science fiction author Philip K. Dick, and Jeter's writing style has frequently drawn comparisons to that of the master himself. Thus, it is particularly fitting that Jeter took up the mantle to carry forward Dick's literary legacy by writing two sequels to the film Blade Runner, which was inspired by Dick's novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. Both sequels, Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human (1995) and Blade Runner: Replicant Night (1996), pay homage to Dick's original themes while also introducing new dimensions to the narrative.
