After being lazy about reading this year, I polished off Count Zero by William Gibson earlier in the week. It's set in the same universe as Neuromancer, but chronologically after. It's a fairly satisfying cyberpunk adventure. Not quite as amazing as Neuromancer but a pretty quick read and I like how Gibson wrapped things up. Fun to revisit the world as well.

 

Working through a 'best of science fiction' compilation now.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

you're missing Monalisa Overdrive, to finish up the Sprawl Trilogy. It's on par with Count Zero. But still not as good as Neuromancer.

Weird, for some reason I thought I had read the third Sprawl Trilogy book, but I was thinking about Burning Chrome. I'll grab Monalisa Overdrive, thanks.

If you like Gibson's style, his Blue Ant trilogy is fun (but not nearly as cyberpunk as the sprawl), but it's a fun urban punk-ish affair.

easy and quick to read.

 

Burning Chrome is good also. I need to get myself a physical copy of it.
