Thanks Mr. Dark, I just finished the book I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream. It was a scream! I loved it. I have The Essential and per your recommendation, I have ordered Deathbird Stories from Amazon. I like him a lot! Lordshen, I also really enjoy reading Gibson's works, you have a great list too.

Has anyone out there read "The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy"?
How about "Cosmicomics" by Calvino?
