Dig Those Killer Lines

Here’s an easy one. Just soak up the lines of this passage from Neuromancer. It’s tight, clean, inventive. I don’t think there’s much popular fiction that can compete with these lines in terms of confidence. They are focused on sustaining a mood but they also teach us about this place and the character, Case. Not much else to say but to take it in and hope the rest of Neuromancer keeps up the quality.
