Recently asked on /a/ about Blame!-like manga, but didn't get any answer.
I know most anglo cyberpunk /lit/sphere implies horror cyber-fiction, so, could you recommend me some good?
So far, I've read:
>Neuromancer / Count Zero / Mona Lisa Overdrive
>Gibson short stories compilled on Burning Chrome
>The Attrocity Exhibition
>Most of Ballard short stories
>Lovecraft complete narrative
>Queen of Angels / Slant by Greg Bear

What's your take on them all so far, OP? I haven't read much, but I enjoyed Neuromancer and love Blame/Biomega. Read Biomega if you haven't.

I'll give Biomega a try after finishing Blindsight
>What's your take on them all so far, OP?
-liked the figure of Wintermute and Neuromancer (in Neuromancer)
-liked the autistic pseudoscientific language on The Atrocity Exhibition
-liked geocosmic mind-gymnastics on most of Ballard
-liked on Blame!: the desolated-uncanny landscapes, the "image > word" relation, and that it demands you to construct the plot.

Totally different genre, but you might like the Gormenghast novels. About life in a sprawling, stagnant, crumbling castle.

Nihei read fuckloads of western sci-fi in college, which is one of the big reasons he decided he wanted to tell his own stories.

Here's a list someone else made:

Great Sky River by Gregory Albert Benford (Cibo)
Feersum Endjin by Ian Banks (Netsphere)
Busou Shimada Souko and Ad-Bird by Shiina, Matoko (Garbage storage, Tetsu, Zulu)
Dead boys and Dead Girls by Richard Calder (Ivy and Maeve)
Kirinyaga by Mike Resnick (Mensaab)
Greg Bear's New Collection by Gregory Dale Bear
Permutation City by Greg Egan
Hyperion, The Fall of Hyperion, Endymion, and The Rise of Endymion by Dan Simmons
Neuromancer, Count Zero, Mona Lisa Overdrive, and Burning Chrome by William Gibson
Steel Beach, The Ophiuchi Hotline, Millenium, Titan, Wizard, The Persistence of Vision, Blue Champagne, and The Barbie Murders(Picnic on Nearside) by John Varley
Billenium by James Graham Ballard

Then there's Solaris, which inspired Knights of Sidonia.
