It's the book that they based Bicentenial Man off of, and I think its great, kinda short, but just plain good.

And Bicentenial Man is a much better story of Artificial Intelligence becoming self aware than A.I., I know it was originally a Stanley Kubrik script before Steven Speilburg got ahold of it, but I really dont like that movie.

Also Short Circuit is the absolute best story about robots coming to life, and possibly one of the best 80s movies ever.

Dumb Fact of the day:

Bicentenial man was based off a story by Isaac Asimov. Who created the concept of a "Positronic Brain". In honor of him, the Android Data on Star Trek had a Positronic Brain.

Short Circuit and batteries not included are two movies from the '80s that really sparked my interest in robotics and A.I. I'm also really looking forward to Ex Machina. That being said, I've neither seen, nor (bringing it back to the main topic) read the material affiliated with Blade Runner beyond the Tiny Toons parody.
