Hey everybody,
I need some help. I'm currently working on a term paper on the depiction of the city in Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner", with some details taken from the novel it's based upon, "Do Androids dream of electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick. The movie takes place in 2019, the book (at least the copy I have) in 2021. I know that the story originally took place in 1992 and that they change that date in later copies of the book so it matches a little better to the film. The problem is, the only source I can find regarding this was Wikipedia (which, at least for my Professor, is not quotable).

So my question would be, is there anyone here who has a copy of the book which still says the story takes place in 1992? If so, please contact me, I just need some bibliographical information.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Good luck with your paper.
