William Gibson sells "whatever"

Even though I'm a big fan of William Gibson and always look forward to reading his books, I still have to laugh at this report in the Jan. 2008 issue of Locus: "William Gibson sold his next novel to Susan Allison at Putnam via Martha Millard. No title, no plot, no outline. Just whatever."

Of course, knowing Gibson's writing ability, I bet even a novel titled Whatever would be amazing.
