A completely original guide to the screenwriter's art -- as only the writer of Blade Runner could concieve it.

The master speaks, in this unique guide for screenwriters -- and writers and artists of all kinds.

In short paragraphs--oracular and enigmatic, hardhitting and concrete--the man Forbes called a "creative genius" writes a guide book like none other for the aspiring screenwriter. Learn how to write living, breathing characters, exciting action and plot, and develop your own artistic vision. And learn how to never compromise that vision, most importantly, with yourself.
