Out One: Android

1. Want to read more about Rivette's Out 1? Here's John Ashbery's 1974 take on the shorter version (Out One: Spectre), from the SoHo News.

2. Strangely, this review of a science-fiction novel by John Scalzi, entitled The Android's Dream, includes this description

The book is, I think, supposed to be a sci-fi send-up of the standard diplomacy potboiler, as competing teams of government agents search for a rare breed of sheep — a crucial element for an alien coronation ceremony — with the fate of the earth hanging in the balance.

...and doesn't mention the allusion to Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.
