Neuromancer

(Link)
I enjoyed Neuromancer, Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive quite a bit. I always felt he created a very clever blend of decetive pulp with science fiction. Molly Millions is still charismatic. I think Gibson's strongest works are his stort stories inBurning Chrome. The Difference Engine is quite excellent as well. There is a compilation Definately some meat, but not too heavy of a fare. Idoru started out great and I could see where he was going with it but it sort of fell flat. I've found his later books to be lacking in sparkle. I think he might be evolving away from his old style and into a new one. I just can't seem to track the story arch.

Stephenson is quite good as well. I loved Snow Crash but if you haven't checked out Jeff Noon do so. I think he is the cream of the crop as far as Cyberpunk goes. I've read a good portion of his work and all of it was very impressive. Lots of extremely digestable meat! Start with Nymphomation you won't be sorry. PLAY TO WIN!
