Alephi : Which sci.fi. book do you like?
João Paulo Rocha : Neuromancer. it’s a great book. This work definitely change my mind and altered my world. The future vision of William Gibson was vital to sci-fi, because he expands the genre out of his barriers. When I see the mainframe of Neuromancer was located in Rio, I became crazy. Brazil finally could exists in sci-fi world. This is amazing. So, besides this, the experimental write of Gibson reminds-me the experimental prose of Jack Kerouac. I think this is fantastic because sci-fi is Always about e revolutionary way to see and express the world, principally if you have to create a world full of imagination and dark high tech to thinking in the development of civilization.
