R. Puchalsky on W. Gibson

I sometimes read Usenet a bit on lazy afternoons; if you've spent any time on alt.books.iain-banks, you've probably run into Richard Puchalsky, who is probably among the most perceptive critics of Banks's work, and science fiction in general, that I've ever read. Alas, lit crit is not his day job, so all we've got are his scattered Usenet posts; but, e.g., his recent post on characters in William Gibson's fiction does nail the subject right on the head.
