Vinge + Ellis = Asimov + Dick + de Sade?

After sending Roger Williams an advance copy of my blog entry on his online novel, The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect, I received a nice note back. In it, he wrote:

"Vernor Vinge meets Bret Easton Ellis" -- that is actually very apt. My own take was that it is a collaboration between Philip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov, and the Marquis de Sade. That isn't so different, is it?
No, I don't think it's so different at all -- though I can't help but wonder how the Marquis de Sade would have reacted to American Psycho.
