dream.20060104: Gibson’s animal shelter

by Rob Friesel

I’ve arrived by parachute at this structure that appears to be a scaled-down version of the tenements from The Kung Fu Hustle – – except that it’s an animal shelter. And I’ve been brought in to re-write their brochures and pamphlets and other literature. It’s a challenging task because the words won’t sit still – – the words crawl around and sentences delete themselves before I can put the period or the question mark on the page. While I’m working on this, I come to discover that this animal shelter is for cyborg dogs, transgenic cats, alien-rabbit hybrids, “rat things”, and other creatures made flesh from science fiction stories. And William Gibson has set up this Humane-Society-for-cyborg-pets and then hired me to re-write the literature.
