Thanks, Andy, for doing such a great job keeping up Leonard's standards as you guest hosted. You brought some great guests.

I was very happy to hear you had invited William Gibson. He politely passed over a small error in your introduction. He did not coin the word "cyberspace" in "Neuromancer." He first used it in his short story "Burning Chrome."
