Dorsett Case is a low-level hustler, former hack and 'console cowboy'

who crashed and burned. His nerves were damaged and thus cut off from

the digital matrix, he slouches through life.

Until he meets

Molly, an augmented 'razorgirl', who offers him a deal on behalf of a

shadowy man called Armitage. His nerves repaired and matrix access

restored, in exchange for a single job. But it's not so simple - unless

he completes the job, sacs of poison will explode inside him and cripple

him again.

And the job? That might be impossible.

The first novel to win the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer has become a seminal part of SF history, coining the term 'cyberspace' and lighting a fuse on the Cyberpunk movement. Part thriller, part warning, it is one of the 20th century's most potent visions of the future.

'A ground-breaking success' - Empire

'Gibson is better than almost anybody at noticing what's genuinely interesting about the world' - Ned Beauman

'Neuromancer is a book of exquisitely observed detail' - Eileen Gunn

William Gibson was born in South Carolina in 1948. Educated in the USA, he emigrated to Canada in 1968 and retains dual nationality. Gibson began writing in 1977 and burst upon the literary world with his acclaimed first novel, NEUROMANCER, the book that launched the cyberpunk generation, and the first novel to win the holy trinity of science fiction, the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards. Although best known for his early cyberpunk novels, Gibson's work has continued to evolve over the ensuing years, always casting an astute critical eye on modern societal trends. In 1999 The Guardian praised him as 'probably the most important novelist of the past two decades'. His most recent books include ZERO HISTORY and THE PERIPHERAL.
