Destroy All Monsters editor-in-chief Musashi left this comment on the post in which I mentioned William Gibson's Web log, and I'd like to share it:
Very very COOL.
Though I haven't been impressed by a Gibson book in quite some time (having moved on to the more flavorful prose of Neal Stephenson), I really like to read his non-fiction.
I actually met Mr. Gibson once, when he was on a literary tour for Virtual Light. He spoke briefly at the Mercantile Library in downtown Cincy, read from Virtual Light, and signed books. (I got my well-worn paperback copy of Neuromancer and a new copy of Virtual Light inscribed...). I mention this because in reading his blog entry regarding meeting fans, it reminded me of how I felt when meeting him. Standing in line with the fifty-odd others who had shown up for the event, I had this odd feeling that we were collectively ambushing the guy, even though he'd come there specifically to do what he was doing. After an all-too-brief chat with Mr. Gibson, I left with the distinct impression that I'd been part of some wierd objectification ritual.
