No. No one has ever fucking heard of William Gibson - the fucking guy who invented the term "Cyberspace".

My thoughts were, when I read the summary of this post, "Oh fuck, he's going to love this book and I'm going to have to agree with the cunt".

Fortunately for me, your appalling taste in literature (matched only by the fact that you listen to music with your anus) means I get to disagree with you and call you a stupid shithead who wouldn't know a good book if he, well..., read one.

William Gibson was a fucking visionary. No wonder you don't get him.
