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.

Ten brilliant, streetwise, high-resolution stories from the man who coined the word cyberspace. Gibson's vision has become a touchstone in the emerging order of the 21st Century, from the computer-enhanced hustlers of Johnny Mnemonic to the technofetishist blues of Burning Chrome. With their vividly human characters and their remorseless, hot-wired futures, these stories are simultaneously science fiction at its sharpest and instantly recognizable Polaroids of the postmodern condition.About the Author:
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.
