Gibson Recognition

[ #16621 ]

Whenever I read anything by William Gibson or Neal Stephenson, I feel somehow like the book was written for me to read at that precise moment in my life. Actually, that's been happening a lot lately, with many books I've been reading, like the Red Mars , Green Mars , Blue Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson, and slightly more recently both The Forever War and Forever Peace by Joe Haldeman. I suppose there's a pretty prosaic explanation for this.

I'm not sure exactly what the connection is, this time to Pattern Recognition , but I think that part of it is the illustration (which happens to be very useful at the moment) of a woman who is very, very interesting, but entirely unlike the woman who briefly, but quite utterly, replaced Stella in my heart.
