I am an emerging science fiction writer from Alberta. In junior highschool in the eighties, I was that guy grinning behind Burning Chrome, Nueromancer, and Mona Lisa Overdrive. Somebody stold my Difference Engine in the nineties, so we know that was also a valuable book.
You were my greatest influence, as to gravitate towards this genre of writing. Thank you for what you have done for literacy. And, we are both Canadian, so, that's kind of cool.
Congratulations on the new book and have a great holiday season.
