Slowly it is turning rebel pop culture inside out, until the artists at pop's cutting edge are now, quite often, cutting-edge technicians in the bargain. Morgan I think is trying more to make old things fresh, so he may never work for you (though you could always try his new fantasy novel, which has had fairly good reviews, do you read fantasy stuff at all? When I isolated a few of the factory buildings on the ground glass of the Hasselblad, they came across with a kind of sinister totalitarian dignity, like the stadiums Albert Speer built for Hitler. Inside the cube was a fluid series of hologrammatic waveforms, fluctuating from nanosecond to nanosecond in a play of knowledge and intention: Aleph.

An un-holy alliance of the technical world and the world of organized dissent—the underground world of pop culture, visionary fluidity, and street-level anarchy.

The heavy noir influence worked for me, but it may well be that I read less sf than you, in which case it could be that I’ve just seen it less. That’s actually rather renewed my interest in the sequels to Altered Carbon Dano, I had rather uncharitably assumed he’d produced them because the market likes predictability and sequels provide that. Greenberg, editors of the short story collection The Best Alternate History Stories of the 20th Century, felt that it was of sufficient merit to include it in the anthology, which contained only 13 short stories. Hopefully you’ll like River of Gods, if worst comes to worst you can always wait for the singularity and then make a copy of yourself to read it then – that’s the only way I’ll ever get through my infinite book pile anyway. Not for us the giant steam-snorting wonders of the past: the Hoover Dam, the Empire State Building, the nuclear power plant.
