    Picked up Horns and Mardock Scramble.

    My snap judgement based on the first couple of pages of each: Horns seems darkly witty, nice writing style. Next on my reading list. Mardock Scramble...I think maybe something was lost in translation, the prose is a little awkward and it's trying too hard to ape Gibson's style.

    What a lot of these properties need is to be turned into TV shows rather than compressing their stories into 2 hours of movie. The Culture series given the kind of money and passion lavished on, say, Battlestar Galactica or The Walking Dead could be special.
