I just finished re-reading the Sprawl Trilogy by William Gibson and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There is something very interesting about his prose and the way his stories and characters arrive in your headspace – it is a very subtle intrusion; almost an insinuation.

It has a fluidity to it and an inevitability that moves everything inexorably to its conclusion. Nothing ever feels forced, the changes of perspective in character’s seems to grow organically, and the deus ex machina is never something that breaks the logic of the story. He writes in a way that is not only unlike any other science fiction writer I have read, but it is distinct from any writer I am aware of.

I find it inspiring, and I know that it forces my own thinking down dark alleyways it might never have gone otherwise.

I have a lot of poetry ideas. I have a lot of fiction ideas. i have a lot of writing and editing to do. reading great books like Neuromancer, Count Zero, and Mona Lisa Overdrive are great fuel for that.
