Last week, Gollancz unveiled the striking covers for the new UK editions of the Neuromancer series! William Gibson‘s classic series has already been released in the UK as eBooks, but these covers are for the upcoming print editions. The series includes: NEUROMANCER, COUNT ZERO, MONA LISA OVERDRIVE and BURNING CHROME.
Here’s the synopsis for NEUROMANCER…
The sky above the port was the colour of television, tuned to a dead channel.
William Gibson revolutionised science fiction in his 1984 debut Neuromancer. The writer who gave us the matrix and coined the term ‘cyberspace’ produced a first novel that won the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards, and lit the fuse on the Cyberpunk movement.
More than three decades later, Gibson’s text is as stylish as ever, his noir narrative still glitters like chrome in the shadows and his depictions of the rise and abuse of corporate power look more prescient every day. Part thriller, part warning, Neuromancer is a timeless classic of modern SF and one of the 20th century’s most potent and compelling visions of the future.
NEUROMANCER is due to be published in the UK on December 8th, and the rest of the series will follow on February 8th, 2017. The first three books are already available as eBooks (covers below), and BURNING CHROME will be available as an eBook on February 8th.
