Episode 31: “Frogmarched to the Head,” or William Gibson’s Neuromancer, Part II

Chris and Jesse are in the same meatspace in Maine, but still talking about cyberspace in…space. As the two microphone jockeys wrap up William Gibson’s Neuromancer, we do TWO close readings (one for and one against Gibson’s chops), talk about how this book created something completely new, and discuss if that fact is why Neuromancer had shown longevity and resilience, despite some issues of craft.

The instrumental surf song at the end of this episode was composed by Peff King and performed by the Broken Spokes as part of their Spaghetti Western Surf Opera “Wanted Man”.
