Life imitates art imitating life

The story about Reggae on Ice - the Siberian, motor-racing adventures of Jamaican reggae-star Lenky Roy reads like a William Gibson novel. In fact is sounds very much like a side plot removed from Gibsons latest novel, Pattern Recognition, and the whole reggae thing is of course to be found in Neuromancer.

How odd that Lenky Roy's marketing people should try to emulate Gibson's sense of story, environment and characters, at the very same time that Gibson is trying to transcend the boundaries of fiction by emulating reality with greater and greater precision.
