William Gibson's Neuromancer

I stumbled upon an online copy of Neuromancer, a book I have read and reread several times. In fact, Rachel just finished her second trip through Gibson's neon dystopia, along with the remaining installments in the Sprawl Trilogy. If you've not heard of the book, considered the first "cyberpunk" novel, take a couple days and give it a shot. It's not very long, but it is very rewarding. You won't even need to read the other books from the trilogy, as Neuromancer is a self-contained story.

Read it here, online. Or save your eyes and buy the paper version here from the author's site.

(BTW: They're making it into a movie, but it's going to suck.)
