Hey, guys, any torrent of the /lit/ recommended guide which doesn't suck?
I was looking about, and notice the normal one is normally dead, so I was wondering if anyone had the collection elsewhere?
Also, I am wondering why more of them aren't in HTML format. Generally speaking, an HTML file can be more easily and correctly transformed into whatever format you might want, without even counting that you can more easily modify it.
So, tell me /lit/, how do I get into the literary goodness?

I'm about halfway through Neuromancer and it's not all it was cut out to be.
It's very hard to follow and the writing isn't very concise. It's just not well written.
I know it's genre fictions, which is more about ideas than the writing, but isn't it supposed to be literary as well? It won the Hugo Award for god's sake.
I can definitely see where The Matrix came from though. It really ripped off a lot of ideas from Neuromancer.
Anyways, I'm planning on reading Snow Crash afterwards just because.
I'm not the biggest fan of Cyberpunk, especially its dystopic setting, but it definitely has appeal.
I'm surprised Cyberpunk hasn't had more of an influence on the culture here on 4chan.
What book should I but tomorrow, if possible?
