William Gibson event

It is with great pleasure that we announce a launch for William Gibson's new book Zero History

Friday, October 29th 7pm @ Librairie Drawn & Quarterly 211 Bernard West

A vivid look at the aura of our age, Zero History is an entertaining incursion into Gibson's fantastically recognizable vision of the 21st century. Edgy, thrilling, and full of Gibson's singular humour, Zero History holds a mirror to our modern world, revealing both its failures and its redemptive wonders. William Gibson made his name with his wild and prescient visions of a science-fiction future, but in Zero History he proves our real-world present day to be just as marvelously peculiar.

About the author:

William Gibson is the author of nine previous books, including, most recently, the New York Times-bestsellers Spook Country and Pattern Recognition. Gibson's 1984 debut novel, Neuromancer, was the first novel to win the three top science fiction prizes—the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the Philip K. Dick Memorial Award. A founder of the "cyberpunk" genre, Gibson is credited with coining the term "cyberspace" in his short story "Burning Chrome", and with popularizing the concept of the Internet while it was still largely unknown.

Gibson lives with his wife in Vancouver, British Columbia.
