This story is about a man named Johnny who stores other people's information in his head. He has some client named Ralfi who wants him dead. Razor Molly tells Johnny that the information in his head was stolen from the Yakuza gang. The Yakuza don't want anyone to get the information out of Johnny's head by using squids. Squids are things used to get the information out people like Johnny's heads. A Yakuza assassin ends up killing Ralfi and Molly takes Johnny to the Lo-Teks, a gang who are against the use of high technology for savages.Once there, they unlock the Yakuza information for blackmail. Molly confronts the assassin at the Lo-Teks and kills him. Johnny and Molly then live with the Lo-Teks and work to pull all the information out of Johnny's head and use it for profit. Johnny wants to only retain his own memories.

This is Cyberpunk because it's science fiction, involves technology being used to get information, and because it involves hacking.

This is Postmodern because it is something unusual, it isn't normal.

In chapter 3 it becomes obvious that Billy suffers from post traumatic stress disorder. Whenever he falls asleep, he finds himself back in the war.

Absurd- Wildly unreasonable illogical, or inappropriate.
Ex. It's absurd when a group of people get punished for the actions of a few people.


  • The main character is writing a book about Dresden 
  • He goes to an old war friend, O'Hare, to remember more about the war.
  • O'Hare's wife didn't like the main character at first because during the war he was just a kid and he was going to write the book as if he was a man.
  • The main character slept in one of O'Hares kids rooms and read a book about the history of Dresden to try and remember events that happened.
  • He read about a massacre where after, the only thing that could be heard was the birds chirping.
