Ten brilliant, seminal, hard-edged, nerve-enhancing stories from the most influential science fiction writer of our time.
Ten brilliant, seminal, hard-edged, nerve-enhancing stories from the most influential science fiction writer of our time. Since they were first published in the 1980s, Gibson’s vision has become a touchstone – his lapidary prose seethes with buzz-phrases newly minted yet destined to be current well in to the future.
Lowlife characters, ghosts and hallucinations haunt the malls and plazas of an intensely realized holographic world, a name-brand society, with cloned Ninja bodyguards, retro fashions, stunning ideas.
Gibson in the year 2000 is the unchallenged guru, prophet and voice of the new cybernetic world order and virtual reality.

‘A fistful of fast, challenging, hot-wired short stories’
New Musical Express
‘Furiously inventive, brilliantly written, the cutting edge of sf’
‘Some subversives are still at work proving that SF can pack its strongest blows into its shortest works… He’s at his best dealing with the victims of the new, the people burnt out by drugs, computers, huge corporations or the strangeness of space’
‘At once a lament and a critique, these stories show the way SF is being rewired. Gibson, his finger jitteringly on the fast-forward button, shows the direction in which our literature might be headed’
William Gibson was born in 1948. He was raised and educated in ‘southern Lovecraftian’ Virginia, USA, but moved to Canada soon after leaving school. He now lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. He is married and has two children.
