Re: RARA-AVIS: Cyberpunk Recomendation?

The Big Three, traditionally: 1) Neuromancer 2) Mirrorshades 3) Snow Crash Personally, I like the last one best. For background, try Mark's recommendation, Dhalgren, & Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow; I don't think you could have Cyberpunk as it is without either of them (but forgive me--that's a tautology, of course).
