Literary Cross-Fertlisation

Amused to see (in Waterstone's on Picadilly) a copy of Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit on the Cyberpunk table. Is Waterstone's finally ready to admit the seminal influence of P G Wodehouse on early Cyberpunk? Will we have to rewrite the whole history of 20th century science fiction? Or did a customer just dump it on the nearest table after changing his mind about buying it?

I left it there, in the hope of sparking some cross-fertilisation between genres. Although I think it might work rather better to sneak a copy of The Diamond Age onto the shelves with the Wodehouse.

Edit: Corrected the title (from Jeeves and the Feudal System). Thanks to the_maenad for the correction.
