As someone who actually discovered cyberpunk through Shadowrun (which I discovered through That Other Game), I can empathize with the "Shadowrun without the orks" guy. I have read (and enjoyed) Neuromancer, but I did so long after Hookline, my first SR character, had bailed on Horizon and hit the shadows running.

Same here, just back in 89 or whatever. SR led me to Gibson, and others.

I also found myself picking up Neuromancer several years after becoming interested in Shadowrun... So I can sympathize.
