Item Description...
Outline ReviewTen brilliant, streetwise, high-resolution stories from the man who coined the word cyberspace. Gibson's vision has become a touchstone in the emerging order of the 21st Century, from the computer-enhanced hustlers of Johnny Mnemonic to the technofetishist blues of Burning Chrome. With their vividly human characters and their remorseless, hot-wired futures, these stories are simultaneously science fiction at its sharpest and instantly recognizable Polaroids of the postmodern condition.

Product Description
Ten brilliant, seminal, hard-edged, nerve-enhancing stories from the most influential science fiction writer of our time. Ten brilliant, seminal, hard-edged, nerve-enhancing stories from the most influential science fiction writer of our time. Since they were first published in the 1980s, Gibson's vision has become a touchstone -- his lapidary prose seethes with buzz-phrases newly minted yet destined to be current well in to the future. Lowlife characters, ghosts and hallucinations haunt the malls and plazas of an intensely realized holographic world, a name-brand society, with cloned Ninja bodyguards, retro fashions, stunning ideas. Gibson in the year 2000 is the unchallenged guru, prophet and voice of the new cybernetic world order and virtual reality.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Solid, introductory selections  Jun 16, 2008
This is a short collection of some of Gibson's only short stories and provides a pretty solid glimpse into the cyberpunk genre. The stories themselves often seem a bit incomplete, a little fragmented at times, they were Gibson's early attempts at writing. Some of the other stories such as 'Dogfight' and 'Burning Chrome' are excellent in idea and execution. A good read overall.
all wonderful but not all cyberpunk  Jun 11, 2008
While William Gibson IS a gifted writer with his original insights into post-modern technological cultural, these short stories don't all revolve around this theme. Only Johnny Mnemonic, New Rose Hotel, Winter Market and Burning Chrome. These stories are the of the same caliber as Neuromancer and Count Zero (the other two Gibson novels I've read). The other stories were not throwaways, but they were goodies thrown into the bag- all good, some exceptional, prosed with short yet deep stories. This is a definite addition to a Gibson collection, but would I go as far as saying that this is a definite addition to a cyberpunk collection... perhaps.
worth it for "Hinterlands" alone  Feb 2, 2008
Take this and the collection Mirrorshades (edited by Bruce Sterling and you will have the definitive "cyberpunk" short story collection.

Burning Chrome is a solid representation of Gibson's early work ("the Sprawl period") and while its most often represented with references to Neuromancer, his finest, most poignant prose is in this collection of short stories.

Perhaps most utterly fascinating is the late-stage Cold War mentality that we had ourselves a nuclear armageddon just around the corner but that after we got there, we would discover it just wasn't nearly as bad as we'd hoped. A few feeble bomb exchanges are overshadowed by black ops infiltration both physical and digital. Our wars are over in days rather than years and then we all go back to normal with re-drawn borders that mean anything only to cartographers anyway.

Even in the shorts where a near-term memory of war is noticeably absent (e.g., "The Gernsback Continuum"), the emphasis still seems to lie on epoch-altering events that are so feeble in their moment but so far-reaching in their wake.

All that said: "Hinterlands" is the most gut-wrenchingly emotional story in science fiction; if nothing else, it alone makes this collection a must-have.
Excellent collection of short stories  Jan 31, 2008
If you liked Neuromancer - you gonna love this collection of short stories by the master of cyber punk genre.
Highly recommended!
