    Neuromancer is a scifi/cyberpunk novel, and a necromancer is a kind of magician (who specializes in dead things), especially in D&D games. I thought it was funny because:

    1) Neuromancer is pretty famous and Necromancer is more obscure

    2) Spellcheck playing D&D is pretty funny

    3) I like to pretend I have a super popular blog where I get lots of fan mail and have a “mailbag” feature
