    I hope you enjoy it. Gibson is one of my favorite writers, just beautiful prose. I've really enjoyed everything he's written. Neuromancer is a particular favorite, being the first Gibson work I read. Heck, I even played the video game adaptation on an Apple II GS. It had music by Devo. One of the interesting things is how Gibson's work has changed over the years. There is a good documentary/interview with him (old at this point) called 'No Maps for These Territories' where he talks about not being able to write anything like Neuromancer any longer as it was effectively, a young man's book and he no longer has access to the kind of mental material that went into it. However, his prose is still sharp as ever in his current books. 'The Peripheral' was really good - a return to more sci-fi themes after a relatively present-set trilogy of books (Pattern Recognition, Spook Country, Zero History).

    Based on all the guesses that this one would be Neuromancer I researched the book and decided I did want to try this one out. Ordered this morning.

    I'd love a Suntup Neuromancer, but I can't hang with prices of Suntup numbered editions.

    I like that the djs distinguish the AGEs as unique in that only that edition has a dj. Makes it feel a bit more special, rather than just a Plain Jane little brother to the Numbered.

    Speaking of AGEs, looks like there’s no AGE for the new book just announced, Neuromancer by William Gibson.

    I love the slipcase . My dust jacket is a little krinkled in a couple of spots. The art work is great. Overall my second favorite Suntup edition.

    I think it'd be ok to gently rub them off with a soft cloth.

    The slipcase only is worth that if not more.

    This was any easy pass for me. If I am paying that much for an offer it can't contain if/then statements, which rules out pretty much every DRP offer for me.

    To be fair, if I were really determined, I could join DRP's collector's club on Patreon and get a copy that way (assuming any are left).
