William GibsonOne of the most creative and consistently acclaimed writers of modern speculative and science fiction and a pioneering proponent of cyberpunk, American-Canadian author William Gibson is credited with having predicted the rise of technical and scientific developments from the Internet to Virtual Reality and coining the term ‘cyberspace’. The Guardian called him ‘probably the most important novelist of the past two decades.’
His earliest short stories and essays in the 1970’s explored burgeoning cybernetics and interconnected communication technology, well before widespread awareness of the Internet. These ideas coalesced in his debut novel Neuromancer, now widely regarded as a classic work of modern science fiction. He followed Neuromancer with two more works in a loosely connected Sprawl trilogy, Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive. Gibson later collaborated with Bruce Sterling on The Difference Engine, an alternative history credited with spearheading the Steampunk movement.
In recent years his work has become increasingly political, with novels including Pattern Recognition, Spook Country, Zero History and The Peripheral commenting obliquely on events from 9/11 to the rise of social media.
