    Very cool. It’s the oppposite end of the length spectrum from Stand on Zanzibar or The Sheep Look Up. Shockwave Rider is a nice, short old school novel, back when they were closer to 60,000 words than 300,000.

    When I read it, I was listening to this soundtrack over and over as I did: http://archive.org/details/sine003
