Hard to find (just try it!), I’m luckily located this copy at ebay. Rare, very rare to see the PKD classic in Henrew language… Reading order is reverse, that is, from back to cover (like Japanese books and so on). And, the only data in occidental characters are the main title, ISBN number and year of publication… Wow, I need some lessons!!! Sueñan los androides con ovejas eléctricas? en edición hebrea Muy raro de localizar (¡sólo inténtalo!), he tenido la suerte de localizar una copia en ebay. Raro, muy raro ver la obra de PKD en lengua hebrea… El orden de lectura es inverso, esRead More →

A new blaster has arrived. Marked as M2019 C.S. Blaster model-gun kit, with a japanese cardbox, and MFG HWS legend, this plastic and metal modelgun is really heavy.

From Masakazu Takeda, just today I’ve received this unique Vid-Phon report “book”. In fact, a 20 pages booklet with complete information about Vid-Phon booth prop, with CD included. It depicts the real prop (one of them) used in the movie. The author has been so lucky to meet with the owner and take all kind of pictures from it. A nice report to (try to) do an accurate replica of this awesome prop! Thank you Masakazu! This report worths its value! In Japanese and English. Informe Vid-Phon Directo de Masazku Takeda, justo hoy acabo de recibir este único informe en forma de libro sobre elRead More →

A new local version arrived just now. The Japanese edition! A very tiny book, in plain Japanese, printed in 1977, and the right to left order of pages, as Japanese books are. I love this cover.

This book features architects, from the firmly established to the up-and-coming, with the focus on how they contributed to the architecture in Japan. This work includes contact information and short biographies in addition to illustrated descriptions of the architects or firms most significants projects. I think is a very interesting way to know some more about the real Japanese architecture, compared with landscapes created to Blade Runner by Ridley Scott. Perhaps those ones was inspiration for him. Architecture in Japan – Philip Jodidio – TASCHEN Este libro presenta arquitectos, desde los más establecidos hasta los noveles que empiezan a despuntar, con un enfoque en cómoRead More →

Today arrived my last of three desired asian editions of the Final Cut. The Korean Special Edition is here. Together with Chinese Special Edition and Japanese briefing case edition, I think this area is closed… Perhaps a Thai edition is out there… Now, I’m looking for a russian edition, if exists (I don’t know). More to come! Pictures of the mentioned editions are in my Mobile Blog (look at the left sidebar) ¡El círculo asiático está cerrado! (en mi humilde opinión) Hoy ha llegado la Edición Especial de Blade Runner en coreano. Junto a la edición china, también en Edicion Especial, y el maletín enRead More →

Today, Friday, I received some items and found some others. In my mailbox I found one nice first edition of Blade Runner 2, Jeter sequel, in Italian language. Nice and near new. Then, a FedEx boy brings me a japanese box with the Future Noir updated with 25th anniversary data (not so much if I must believe what I’ve read somewhere). Only Amazon Japan is selling this edition for now (in English and hardcover). Wow. Two nice additions… but there is more to come.  A DVD Accion magazine (Spanish one) with Deckard in cover. Not so extensive inside. Three pages talking about DVD and HDRead More →
