Blade Runner... " I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain... Time to die "

The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel. The Chatsubo was a bar for professional expatriates; you could drink there for a week and never hear two words in Japanese. Ratz was tending bar, his prosthetic arm jerking monotonously as he filled a tray of glasses with draft Kirin. He saw Case and smiled… - William Gibson – Neuromancer Okay. The Japanese is bad, call it deliberate. This is an ex-pats bar and well, Ratz – He don’t care much if his sign reads wrong in Japanese. ;)

Meet Max, the A.I. superintendant of the ultra modern apartment block Maxwell Towers. He can do anything from control your water temperature, change your TV channel and even order you a pizza. But don’t threaten or endanger one of his beloved tenants because their well being is his prime concern. If you do, and you step into his lift, he’ll take you to meet your worst fears in his secret virtual reality suite on his hidden Thirteenth Floor. A great character from the classic 1980s banned horror comic Scream! (and later in The Eagle comic) and a fabulous addition to the pantheon of evil computers, robots and A.I.s.
