in reply to The sort of fiction you're most likely to find me reading:

I'm shocked.... Nowhere on the list and not one comment about any book by William Gibson?!?

Aside from the bastardization of the C word that every marketing putz from here to the moon still misuses over and over and over....

Neuromancer, Count Zero, MonaLisa OverDrive - these are Classics...

Virtual Light, All Tomorrow's Parties, Pattern Recognition - not so ground-breaking but more CURRENT anyway...

Or is this like siting Citizen Kane as your favorite movie? Too obvious?

Is this thing on?



Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!

    A real pity it is indeed!

    I try to reread these classics at least once every few years.
