Okay, so this past Saturday my band had a show right outside of Chicago. Afterward, driving around the city, we passed Cermak avenue. Having run bug city and read burning bright, I immediately recognized the name. It was really nifty to realize that I was traveling through a spot that would eventually become fictionally infested by giant bug spirits. It also cemented what the place REALLY looked like for me. Iíll have to find a reason for the pcís to head back.

I guess ground zero of the Cermak blast was right across the street from FASA's old HQ when they wrote Bug City.

Yes the bomb dropped right across the street I live not more than 10 minutes from said location. Which is why i was pissed when i got back from vacation and i saw the post about clearing out the place from all the old stuff.....boxes of sweet sweet SR stuff and I missed out because I picked the wrong damn week to be on vacation out of state. Thats Karma for ya. Bug City is like my most favorite SR book just because I know all the locations they are talking about.

I think Bug City is my favorite book because it's just that damn creepy.

Not even Master Shedim make me shiver as much as Bug City does.

I always pictured it looking like the industrial zone at the end of Robocop for some reason. Interesting to see what it looks like in reality. :)
