Poolside paperback

One of my favourite books of 2010 is now in paperback. William Gibson's Zero History is a contemporary-set science-fiction spy adventure about military contracting and fashion. With a wicked cast of characters, sharp writing and the tempo of a mystery novel, Zero History is a great summer read. Now in paperback for the poolside.

Some sound bits:

"After revolutionizing science fiction with a downbeat yet oddly familiar vision of the near future, William Gibson has ventured into new territory – the spy thriller – with a set of novels that look briefly backward, examining our recent history by way of digital art, signals intelligence and postmodern advertising." —The Globe and Mail

"To read Gibson is to read the present as if it were the future, because it seems the present is becoming the future faster than it is becoming the past." —The New York Times
