          I can't wait for Cinemaphile to whine when it accurately portrays a Japanese cyborg girlboss beating up men.

          If you're talking about Molly (who Gibson said he based on The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde), she gets in three confrontations over the course of the book; one where a random security guard breaks her leg, one where a genetically engineered Japanese ninja btfos her, and her greatest victory when she successfully shoots a senile old man after he falls asleep

          wasn't she a prostitute

          She raised funds for her eye and nail implants by literally renting out her body (her conscious mind goes dormant and an AI uses her as a frick puppet) but she quit after she realized due to subliminal dreams that she was being used to help kill other girls there

            That Gibson handled it somewhat realistically - and I think you're leaving out that it's clearly established she could kick Case's ass - has no bearing on the situation, the rot hadn't spread too deep but it was still present else why have a badass fightin' chick at all?

      The problem with adapting Neuromancer is that it’s been so influential that everything in it has already been done in some form or another. Plus its fetishization of muh advanced Japan is laughably dated.

      Molly Millions was white, not Japanese. Just like Ffirefly, the Sprawl Trilogy uses Asian (and Caribbean) cultures for flavor and exoticism, but doesn’t actually have many Asian characters. The only important one I can think of was a hapa girl in Mona Lisa Overdrive.

        Pretty much this. It's so heavily referenced in every media that people will write off as generic scifi/cyberpunk. Also, the book isn't that good to begin with when you take it on its own merits and ignore its influence.

        It's cool, same late 80s/early 90s aesthetic as Hackers with goofy CDT monitors ahd oayphines in space, but all the tech and existential angst of Ghost In The Shell was derived from it as well. Gibby's a gppd worldbuilder and a witty writerx he fets too much shit for being a pseudohippie lolbert.

        What's he gonna do with control? Stephen King had control over his Shining adaptation and it stunk worse than Kubcrik's

        But Michael Crichton and Wes Craven were great when they had creative control. King is just as bad a filmmaker as he is a storyteller.

        Everything about Neuromancer was already dated 10 years after it was published. The Soviet Union collapsed with no nuclear war, Japan's real estate bubbled had popped and their economy would never recover, and computers had advanced and GUIs were now a thing and technical specs were already way better. Meanwhile, America's cities were revitalizing and America went on to dominate the internet while Japan was a minor player.

        An ironic fate, given that cyberpunk was a cynical reaction to the unrealistic, failed predictions of Golden Age Sci-fi (Gibson explicitly says this in the intro to Burning Chrome).

      I always tell the kids on Cinemaphile that if they go in expecting some kind of treatise on the future of internet technology and it’s consequences they’ll be disappointed. If however you go in looking for a cool heist book set in the future written by a meth addict who barely understands how a computer works in the 1980s, it’s fricking awesome. The first book took me some time to get into because of the made up jargon but once you get I found the whole series to be real page-turner quality stuff.

      To elaborate, it’s a pretty good book on its own other than some 1980s attempts at being edgy and cool. But it’s very dated, even its famous opening sentence is nonsensical in the modern age. But the world is interesting and well-realized, pretty atmospheric and the plot is sufficiently engaging you’ll want to keep reading.

    Yeah. Gibson's dystopian cyberpunk future full of godlike megacorps is a utopia to a megacorp like Apple.

    LOL is this true?
    The guy who wrote books about non-Japanese people living in Japan and treating it as their own little playground is pissed about outsiders moving into and fricking up his home? Fricking Asians no less?

            Nobody would live here voluntarily for that long unless they really bought in. Unless they're banging a drum and going HEYA HEYA HEYA, any Canadian or his ancestors came from somewhere else

                I think Burning Chrome is criminally slept on, and should be made as a proof of concept/SFX showcase anthology before Neuromancer

                That would be pretty great, he covers a surprising variety of genres in the Burning Chrome stories.

                its where the concept of raygun gothic came from. people would shit themselves at the stories. like the crippled girl who created the simsense universes or the burned up neurojacked pilots in the wargame story. new rose hotel needs to be done right though.

                Is Burning Chrome the one that has the story of the guy playing the biplane arcade game?

    The only way you could conceivably make this work is as a kooky alternate history retrofuture thing like Fallout. It's too rooted in the late 70s/early 80s to work any other way.

      thats a given. in the books no one even knows what year it is since its basically irrelevant. things are built on top of things on top of things. I still say it should be either from the Dixie Flatline telling some guys a story in a bar, where at the end its the people case saw at the end of the book with Linda Lee, or Maelcum telling his stoned off his space breasts telling I AN I GWAN SPEAK ROOTS TALE with the kids constantly giving him shit at the end and beginning of the episode. they would have to have the combined wintermute and neuromancer be his buddy on the internet

    This book would make for a pretty cool movie. Too bad any adaptation will just naturally suck.
    I can't imagine them doing justice to the scene with the Turing agents, or the weird fricked up clone incest world of the Ashepooles, the insanity of the Colonel, or capturing the overall downer tone of the ending.

    I actually shouldn't care because I (thankfully) had family that was out of age range for both WW2 and the Viet-Independence War. Grandpa did a tour in South Korea but made it back.
    But here's the thing, Johnson and Kissinger are both roasting nicely (together) for their work, while Vietnam is doing just fine.
