WILLIAM GIBSON Launch Tonight!

“...one of the most visionary, original, and quietly influential writers currently working.” (The Boston Globe)

“His eye for the eerie in the everyday still lends events an otherworldly sheen.” (The New Yorker)

“[his] ability to hit the sweet spot of cutting-edge culture is uncanny.” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)


That's right, William Gibson will be IN STORE TONIGHT to launch his new novel ZERO HISTORY
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.

William Gibson, 211 Bernard, 7 pm. Not to be missed!
