THIS IS IT! The 2061 Slang Glossary. With its humble beginnings as a simple "2050 Glossary of Slang" [from "Into the Shadows," pp. 277-281 & Shadowrun, 1st ed (BBB), pg. 161], this compilation has grown into the 146K-Byte, hypertext monster that it is, today. (With any luck I haven't left too many dead links!) Kudos & Karma to Jes Wulfsberg Nielsen who did lots of the CP-2020 compiling muck-work and to Renegade (Phil Ward), & Pelzig, for their "Slang Guide to 2054," which included the contributions from Neal Stephenson's novel, "Snow Crash."
Jes' "SR & CP Glossary" is located at http://w1.1423.telia.com/~u142300000/Shadow.html. Renegade & Pelzig's original guide can be found in Paolo's Shadowrun Archive. To get Paolo's latest URL, click for my links page. Please feel free to send comments, proof-readings, or your own Shadowrunning terms & I'll add 'em to the gloss.
