Peter and Valentine were the greatest net trolls ever.

LOL.

I just read the book recently and their story was one of the best part of the book.

Since it was written in 1985 the author did a pretty good job of guessing what will happen.

But if we continue obscure references…

Roy will be born soon…I hope he enjoys seeing attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion!

Or better yet, use it in some other context-- like this:

“Abel Ferrara couldn’t write a plot with that many holes in it”

What I do know, is that Marty, Doc, and Jennifer are showing up in a few years.

No sign yet of a hoverboard, not even a prototype.
