Neuromancer: William Gibson

£9.99

William Gibson revolutionised science fiction in his 1984 debut ‘Neuromancer’. The writer who gave us the matrix and coined the term ‘cyberspace’ produced a first novel that won the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards, and lit the fuse on the Cyberpunk movement. More than three decades later, Gibson’s text is as stylish as ever, his noir narrative still glitters like chrome in the shadows and his depictions of the rise and abuse of corporate power look more prescient every day. Part thriller, part warning, this book is a timeless classic of modern SF and one of the 20th century’s most potent and compelling visions of the future.

Description

Henry Dorsett Case is a low-level hustler, former hack and ‘console cowboy’ who crashed and burned. His nerves were damaged and thus cut off from the digital matrix, he slouches through life.

Until he meets Molly, an augmented ‘razorgirl’, who offers him a deal on behalf of a shadowy man called Armitage. His nerves repaired and matrix access restored, in exchange for a single job. But it’s not so simple – unless he completes the job, sacs of poison will explode inside him and cripple him again.

And the job? That might be impossible.

The first novel to win the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer has become a seminal part of SF history, coining the term ‘cyberspace’ and lighting a fuse on the Cyberpunk movement. Part thriller, part warning, it is one of the 20th century’s most potent visions of the future.

‘A ground-breaking success’ – Empire
‘Gibson is better than almost anybody at noticing what’s genuinely interesting about the world’ – Ned Beauman
Neuromancer is a book of exquisitely observed detail’ – Eileen Gunn
