Ever since I opened up William Gibson's Neuromancer I was fascinated with the idea of mixing flesh with technology. The idea of going as far into these "Black Clinics" (Underground laboratories, clinics, and or hospitasl) to get the most cutting edge of treatments, and unregulated biological modifications is something I want to learn more about, follow developments in our world, and how to contribute.

This thread is meant to be a general for the idea for now. Post anything relating to modification and genetic manipulation.

Like any other illegal enterprise, they would rely on reputation and word of mouth, possibly even only admitting patients with a reference from another longterm patient. That's how they'd build a clientelle and make money. Why would you let someone with no licence AND no reputation cut you up in the first place?

This movie is a little arthousey but I think a lot of people here might like it. Granted it is slow paced with long periods of silence. But daaaaaamn, is it ever gorgeous and creepy and haunting and downright Kubrickian at times. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWF0bBKhe6o

The inspiration for this is kind of funny. The director remembered being a kid back when you had to go to the store and rent tapes if you wanted to watch movies at home but the R rated ones were off limits to children. He used to look at all the covers of the SF and horror flicks they wouldn't rent to him and imagine what they were like. He carried this imagery in his head for 30 years and this film was what he finally made.

That should explain why it's 10% story and 90% sensory..

I'm fairly certain that everyone here has read at least Neuromancer (or knows the quotes/plot/tropes), but have you read the rest of the series or any of Gibson's other works? If you haven't given the rest of the Sprawl Trilogy a try yet, I recommend it. Count Zero gets ragged on quite a bit for being the weakest of the series, but your mileage may vary because I enjoyed it. I think Mona Lisa Overdrive is a stronger book than Neuromancer but not quite as influential. The writing in the first book feels a bit juvenile compared to the writing in MLO, and Gibson himself reflected on this in an interview. He said something to the effect of: "Neuromancer was a young man's tale."

I think a case can be made that the Sprawl Trilogy was Gibson's first, very basic ideas of what a cyberpunk world might actually look like. A lot of ideas about cyberpunk were updated and revised in the post-cyberpunk trilogy he wrote after it, the Bridge Trilogy. The Blue Ant Trilogy feels less like the cyberpunk of Neuromancer and much more like the cyberpunk of today.

The Sprawl Trilogy (Cyberpunk)
The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.

The quintessential classic. The cyberpunk tale that started it all. Like Gibson's other trilogies, the main cast changes with every book with a handful recurring characters making multiple appearances. The jump between Neuromancer and Count Zero can be a bit off-putting for people who really liked the first book, but the pay-off is worth it when you see all of the pieces fall into place.
>Neuromancer (1984)
>Count Zero (1986)
>Mona Lisa Overdrive (1988)

Short Stories
>Burning Chrome (1986)
>New Rose Hotel (1981)
>Johnny Mnemonic (1981)

The Bridge Trilogy (Post-cyberpunk)
He has long since come to prefer her in silence. He no longer inserts the yellowing audio beads. He has learned to provide his own, whispering to her as he fast-forwards through the clumsy titles and up the moonlit ragged hiliscape of a place that is neither Hollywood nor Rio, but some soft-focus digital approximation of both.

It's been a long time but I think I actually read Count Zero first and didn't find it lacking as a standalone in the slightest. I got Neuromancer for my dad as a birthday present. He read classic SF his whole life and I was raised on his old paperbacks. He was an engineer and actually recalled using a computer with punch cards in university. All around a smart guy and yet, he said it was hard to follow. He said he enjoyed it but had to read at least one chapter twice in a row. He went into some detail about the parts that mystified him too, not just "I dun geddit".

I took that as a pretty good indication as to how fast technology and theory does advance, like if you're not keeping up with the latest you just get left in the dust.

I guess it'll be the same as when you read Skakespeare or James Joyce and there are antiquated sayings or references to forgotten customs. Either your lit teacher or a footnote in the book told you something about those. Any millennials or future readers still reading Gibson in the future will be nerds, and probably visit websites just like this one or else just find a wiki article.

Anyone else find Neuromancer hard to read? Just got to the part where case goes back to his "coffin" seeing that Linda left and destroyed the keycard scanner or something and I assumed she ran away. But when he opens the door some girl is at the back wall? Is this Linda?
