I love the imagery of Gibson's prose. Fiction or not, the colour and the palpable taste of each scene is rendered with a point of view that one might except from someone with a snobbish obsession. I'm sure he could make a garbage dump or a sewage treatment container sound magically exciting and new. Of course learning a bit more about someone who has worked on things I care about has a tragedy of losing a bit of the magic you expect that person to wield. Gibson describes his world, ostensibly our world as a place I most excitedly want to see.

This is a great Sunday reader of a collection. Something to take in on a quiet bright lit day where your only expectation for the time is a bit of comfort and ammunition for your imagination.
