   How're you finding Pattern Recognition? I looked at it in a bookshop at 
the weekend, but I'm going to wait until the paperback comes out, I think. 
E25 still too much for a novel, even a Gibson.

   Actually, one bookshop had it at E25. Across the road, marked "Special 
Price", it was E26.50. That's not the usual meaning of "Special", guys.
