LITERATURE: Neuromancer – Cybersex

Just as I was about to back out of this book as something that wasn't my type of read, Gibson comes up with an operation for Case and a sex scene that somehow grounds it back into the reality of human feeling. Did he realize that, aside from sci fi fans, this world was a bit too seemy, too alien for the reader?

"Don't," she said, "finger prints."  (p. 33)
