Blade Runner: A Story of the Future is a 1982 book by Les Martin. It is a novelization of Blade Runner, which itself was loosely based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

Dick himself had initially been offered $400,000 to pen a novelization of the film, but he refused, as the producers wanted it to appeal to a younger audience. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was soon reprinted under the title Blade Runner, with the original title used as a subtitle. Eventually, Les Martin was hired to write a book adaptation of the film.
