Hampton Fancher, the original screenwriter of Blade Runner, has tried his hand at a new form of writing. His debut collection of short stories The Shape of the Final Dog, which will be released tomorrow, September 13, offers readers twelve eerie tales that are grounded in reality, yet test the boundaries of normalcy. While some of Fancher’s characters exhibit bizarre and exaggerated behavior, they simultaneously evoke relatable human tendencies and emotions.
Fancher will appear at BookCourt to celebrate the release of his book tomorrow, September 13, at 7 p.m. BookCourt is located at 163 Court St. in Cobble Hill.
Stay tuned for Book Beat’s Q&A with Fancher.
