Tyromancer

I have a Word for the Day that I put up each morning at work.

Today's was Tyromancy--an obsolete word meaning "Divination by studying the coagulation of Cheese."

I loved Gibson's genre-defining Neuromancer, and would like it very much if he would write a gritty, edgy dark-future novel set in Wisconsin, or maybe France or Switzerland, called "Tyromancer." It could define a new literary genre. Cheesepunk.
