Recently asked on /a/ about Blame!-like manga, but didn't get any answer.
I know most anglo cyberpunk /lit/sphere implies horror cyber-fiction, so, could you recommend me some good?
So far, I've read:
>Neuromancer / Count Zero / Mona Lisa Overdrive
>Gibson short stories compilled on Burning Chrome
>The Attrocity Exhibition
>Most of Ballard short stories
>Lovecraft complete narrative
>Queen of Angels / Slant by Greg Bear
idk seems like youve read the good one. There arnet many. MAybe some Dick?
What's your take on them all so far, OP? I haven't read much, but I enjoyed Neuromancer and love Blame/Biomega. Read Biomega if you haven't.

I'll give Biomega a try after finishing Blindsight
>What's your take on them all so far, OP?
-liked the figure of Wintermute and Neuromancer (in Neuromancer)
-liked the autistic pseudoscientific language on The Atrocity Exhibition
-liked geocosmic mind-gymnastics on most of Ballard
-liked on Blame!: the desolated-uncanny landscapes, the "image > word" relation, and that it demands you to construct the plot.
Totally different genre, but you might like the Gormenghast novels. About life in a sprawling, stagnant, crumbling castle.

Nihei read fuckloads of western sci-fi in college, which is one of the big reasons he decided he wanted to tell his own stories.
