another idol

  • Pattern Recognition
  • Burning Chrome
  • The Difference Engine (with Bruce Sterling)
  • Neuromancer
the first time i read his book, "Neuromancer", i literally had a headache. reading gibson's works require a concentration akin to aiming a warhead in murky waters. he is a futurist who wrote about it while its tendrils were just reaching out to society. he saw the norm in what others considered a fad. and he is every bit a storyteller as much as an oracle in this sci-fi genre.
