Best-known for his seminal sf novel NEUROMANCER, William Gibson is also a master of short fiction. Tautly-written and suspenseful, BURNING CHROME collects 10 of his best short stories with a preface from Bruce Sterling, co-Cyberpunk and editor of the seminal anthology MIRRORSHADES. These brilliant, high-resolution stories show Gibson's characters and intensely-realized worlds at his absolute best. Contains 'Johnny Mnemonic' (filmed starring Keanu Reeves) and title story 'Burning Chrome' - both nominated for the Nebula Award - as well as the Hugo-and-Nebula-nominated stories 'Dogfight' and 'The Winter Market'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A fistful of fast, challenging, hot-wired short stories - New Musical Express

Furiously inventive, brilliantly written, the cutting edge of SF - Guardian

Some subversives are still at work proving that SF can pack its strongest blows into its shortest works . . . He's at his best dealing with the victims of the new, the people burnt out by drugs, computers, huge corporations or the strangeness of space - Fiction Magazine

“Hallucination By Consensus.”

Stephen King says that a short story should be like a ‘kiss in the dark from a stranger’. It certainly fills that criteria. Most of the stories take place in The Sprawl - Gibson fans will recognise Molly Millions,... More
