>Johnny Mnemonic - William Gibson

One of the fundamental cyberpunk stories. If you dont like cyberpunk because of the aesthetic or community or whatever give this a try anyway.

>George

Also The Immortal is his best work by far.

And while Gibson is pleb, Winter Market is much better than Johnny Mememetic

I never understood why people like Borges that much, he always writes so pretentiously. Do the translations carry all that bullshit or they are at least readable without a fucking dictionary?

The people who enjoy him usually don't need a dictionary while reading his stories.

Have you read borges in spanish? I don't have a problem with the words themselves, I have a problem with how he tries to sound too smart with the words and how he bends a simple phrase into something too esoteric and unnatural. Oh behold, I who for one among all mortals is capable of not only writing in such an exquisite prose but one who vaunts of besetting words with empyreal meanings seldom wrought by enthralled humans in the depths of the mire of destiny and creation… can I have my prize now?

No I read it in English like a pleb, sorry.
