I'd heard the start of this on Cory Doctorow's podcast. It feels like a slow (and highly effective) crossfade between the two authors throughout -- the ending is certainly Strossian in concept. Lots and lots of amusing bits to spot in the text. Not sure how well it'll date!

There's a lovely riff on the start of Neuromancer: at one point the sky is described as being the colour of a television tuned to a dead channel -- i.e. bright blue.
