Added DiffLines:

* UnproblematicProstitution: Zigzagged. Molly's tenure as sex worker ''started'' this way, since the computer programs did all the actual prostitution for her--she describes it as "free money". But then her boss switched her to violent snuff programs ''without telling her'', and her new modifications woke her up in the middle of a session that she implies involved murder and/or necrophilia.

* SelfMadeOrphan: Although it's Molly who actually kills Ashpool, he was about to kill ''himself'' because [[spoiler: Lady 3Jane, at Wintermute's urging, tweaked his cryo programming specifically to make him that way.]]

A 1984 [[FilmNoir noir]] novel by Creator/WilliamGibson, and TropeCodifier for an entire generation of SciFi stories. '''''Literature/{{Neuromancer}}''''' is the primary example of {{Cyberpunk}} alongside ''Film/BladeRunner'', showcasing the cynical use of technology so characteristic of that genre. Most modern stories related to CyberPunk, CyberSpace and related tropes can be largely traced back to this one story. It is also the first of Gibson's famous ''Literature/SprawlTrilogy'' (followed by ''Literature/CountZero'' and ''Literature/MonaLisaOverdrive'').
