William Gibson is "one of science fiction's most visionary and distinctive voices" (Wired), credited with coining the term "cyberspace" in his short story "Burning Chrome," and with popularizing the concept of the Internet while it was still largely unknown. Gibson's 1984 debut novel, Neuromancer, was the first debut to win science fiction's top three prizes—the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the Philip K. Dick Memorial Award. His latest work is a collection of essays entitled Distrust That Particular Flavor, published last year.
