A study guide for RDE's SF course at Miami University (Oxford, OH), featuring a list of Characters in the novel, an extensive "Word/Allusion List," "Rich Erlich On Plot, Story, World In Neuromancer," excerpts from the critics, a word or two on cyberpunk/pomo, especially in film, and then "Brute-Force Criticism": RDE moving through the novel, asking questions, doing close readings of small sections and trying to fit them into larger patterns—including noting additional allusions.
