I'm reading The Gilded Age by Mark Twain.  I'm 100 pages into it and I still don't know what it's about.  He keeps killing off main characters and switching into new storylines.

Mark Twain was a genius, made piles of sense but was also hilarious.

True dat, as I recall he had a rather interesting experience with a certain device against Tesla's advice and had some bowel malfunction as a result...

I have, as well as a cool old copy of "My Inventions" collected from [some oldschool radio magazine].

I've read through Neuromancer countless times. I started reading it when I was only 11. I figured it as the greatest book ever written. A sci-fi world that's no inhabited by aliens who want to eat your skulls, or some exotic whore who wants to screw you or a space princess.

Many moons pass. I keep the same book and never actually bother to look it up on the net for any other of his writings. Don't ask why, I just didn't. A book that when I read it had come to a complete and total end turned out to be a three parter.

Recently I've read through William Gibson's Neuromancer, Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive. All three of which I suggest reading when given the chance. To this day I'm still heavily intrigued and amazed by the fact of how well Gibson wrote the net as a future every-man's thing. Everyone uses it now and it really doesn't show signs of ever leaving the radar. Very interesting books to say in the least.

Today however I'll be wandering around the sci-fi section and picking up a random book. Or maybe finally read some Philip K. Dick and see why he's the big gun of the old sci-fi world. Either way, I'm going to get my acne ridden geek on.

I'm going to have to chime in here and state for the record both Count Zero and Mono Lisa Overdrive are better then Neuromancer, however Neuromancer does have a better title.
