    Peter Turchi: IMG Writing as Puzzle

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Case was the sharpest data thief in the Matrix, until an ex-employer crippled his nervous system. Now a new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run against an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence. With a mirror-eyed girl street-samurai riding shotgun, he's ready for the silicon-quick, bleakly prophetic adventure that upped the ante on an entire genre of fiction.

Review:

"Kaleidoscopic, picaresque, flashy and decadent...an amazing virtuoso performance." The Washington Post

Synopsis:

The Matrix is a world within the world, a global consensus- hallucination, the representation of every byte of data in cyberspace . . .

Case had been the sharpest data-thief in the business, until vengeful former employees crippled his nervous system. But now a new and very mysterious employer recruits him for a last-chance run. The target: an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence orbiting Earth in service of the sinister Tessier-Ashpool business clan. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case embarks on an adventure that ups the ante on an entire genre of fiction.

Hotwired to the leading edges of art and technology, Neuromancer ranks with 1984 and Brave New World as one of the century's most potent visions of the future.

Synopsis:

In celebration of its ten-year anniversary, cyberpunk classic Neuromancer comes to hardcover, with an all-new introduction by the author. "Freshly imagined, compellingly detailed and chilling in its implications".--New York Times. "The first novel to win SF's triple crown--the Hugo, the Nebula, and Philip K. Dick awards".--Time.

Katherine Stuart, November 16, 2008 (view all comments by Katherine Stuart)
Gibson’s debut novel defines a generation of sci fi. It also harkens back to the beliefs of John Campbell – an extremely influential sci fi magazine editor in the 1940s and ‘50s. Gibson excels at taking existing technology or technological ideas and moving them forward. He has some ideas of the future of corporations that are similar enough to mine as to make it utterly fascinating to see his visions. The book is well-paced, filled with his quite fabulous almost believable people and it’s all so very pretty in that post-modern sort of way.
