I’m finally getting around to reading Richard Morgan’s Altered Carbon, as recommended by a friend. He more than recommended it to me, he spoke of it in glowing terms and lent me the book. I’m a couple of chapters in so far and it’s interesting enough, though it seems to be a soft science fiction version of The Big Sleep, one of my favourite novels. I’d hesitate to call it cyperpunk noir, as I define that category fairly narrowly, but time will tell.
