William Gibson

A non fiction book by

In the appropriately Orwellian year of 1984, William Gibson's novel, "Neuromancer", burst upon the science fiction field and became the first novel to win science fiction's triple crown: the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Philip K. Dick awards. "Neuromancer"'s stunning success also bestowed upon Gibson the title "Godfather of Cyberpunk," an artistic revolution against the lifeless neorealism and predictable science fiction of the late 1970's and early 1980's.

In the "Starmont Reader's Guide to William Gibson", Lance Olsen examines Gibson's life, attitudes, and novels: "Burning Chrome", "Neuromancer", "Count Zero", and "Mona Lisa Overdrive", giving us revealing insights into these intriguing works and the man who wrote them.
