I still have a (very) badly worn paperwork that I picked up as a
kid in the 90s at a used book store ;) 

Nick Haflinger was (to my mind) never quite as "cool" as Case
or Bobby Quine, but it's a damn good book, way ahead of it's time...
it predates the Gibson stuff by nearly a decade.

I've been re-reading Borges recently. His ruminations on infinity are
an interesting prelude to cyberpunk and modern sci-fi in general.
Gibson rather shamelessly stole "the aleph" (name and all!) from
Borges' short story written in the 30s (or 40s?) for Mona Lisa 
Overdrive :)
