Through the Looking Glass

Bruce Sterling calls Joel Garreau's Washington Post interview with William Gibson, "One of the best William Gibson interviews ever." Garreau interview Gibson about Spook Country, his new novel that is so futuristic, it could only have been set in the recent past, and digs into the meaning and purpose of sf and literature in general, and how it ties into a world of technological change and splintering subculture. Garreau pinged Bruce for good, meaty Gibson questions.

The author's new book,

The Post-9/11 Era Has Caught Up With William Gibson's Vision

Southwest Washington is an antique vision of the future. It's mid-century's idea of "progress," a never-to-be-repeated experiment in bulldozing shabby if genuine neighborhoods and replacing them with chilly high-rise modernity. To this day it struggles to present much sense of life or soul.

It is weird finding William Gibson here, even given his acute sense of irony.

Prisoner | Terrorist

Embryo Hunts in Secret, Go Go Second Time Virgin, Sex Jack and Ecstasy of Angels, that he is best known. 

Prisoner | Terrorist

Trailer (QuickTime Video) for Prisoner | Terrorist by Masao Adachi. (jp) Also... an Interview with Masao Adachi at Midnight Eye. "...Born in 1939 in Kita Kyushu, Adachi emerged from the Nihon University Film Study Club, better known as Nichidai Eiken, alongside filmmakers like Motoharu Jonouchi and Isao Okishima, to become one of the leading figures in the underground experimental scene of the 60s, with films like Sain (1963) and Galaxy (1967). However, it is for his later associations with Nagisa Oshima, in whose Death by Hanging (1968) he appears in the role of the security officer, and more famously with Koji Wakamatsu, scripting literally dozens of his most famous titles including Embryo Hunts in Secret, Go Go Second Time Virgin, Sex Jack and Ecstasy of Angels, that he is best known."
