Unread. In a clear protective Brodart mylar cover. In his third and most ambitious cyberpunk novel set in the same fantastic future as Neuromancer and Count Zero, William Gibson delivers a thought-provoking glimpse into an imagined future at once dangerous and totally believable. The world-dominating multinationals and the free-lance cyber-jockeys are locked in a power struggle in the deep recesses of cyberspace, wars fought with information as its money and ultimately the future of humanity as its reward. A gripping, hypnotic novel from the author who is credited with being the father of the cyberpunk movement. Some shelf wear at corners and top and bottom edge of dj spine.

Synopsis: William Gibson, author of the extraordinary multiaward-winning novel Neuromancer, has written his most brilliant and thrilling work to date . . . The Mona Lisa Overdrive. Enter Gibson's unique world--lyric and mechanical, erotic and violent, sobering and exciting--where multinational corporations and high tech outlaws vie for power, traveling into the computer-generated universe known as cyberspace. Into this world comes Mona, a young girl with a murky past and an uncertain future whose life is on a collision course with internationally famous Sense/Net star Angie Mitchell. Since childhood, Angie has been able to tap into cyberspace without a computer. Now, from inside cyberspace, a kidnapping plot is masterminded by a phantom entity who has plans for Mona, Angie, and all humanity, plans that cannot be controlled . . . or even known. And behind the intrigue lurks the shadowy Yazuka, the powerful Japanese underworld, whose leaders ruthlessly manipulate people and events to suit their own purposes . . . or so they think.
