RPI: William Gibson, science fiction author

William Gibson is a visionary author of speculative
fiction whose work explores the future implications of contemporary
human technologies. His 1984 novel, Neuromancer, winner of the
Nebula, Hugo, and Philip K. Dick awards, helped to define the popular
culture of the Computer Age. His other major works include Pattern Recognition (2003), Virtual Light (1993), and Mona Lisa Overdrive (1988). Regarding Zero History (2010), a novel about present-day consumer tracking technologies, the New York Times reviewer said, “To read Gibson is to read the present as if it were the future….”

Gibson’s new novel is The Peripheral
(2014), about drones, drugs, outsourcing, telepresence, trailer parks,
kleptocracy, and 3D fabbing.
