This Thursday (May 27th), audiobook and cyberpunk fans in the UK will be able to get their hands (ears?) on the new audio edition of William Gibson‘s classic NEUROMANCER! Narrated by Jason Flemyng, it’s published via W.F. Howes’s Clipper imprint. Here’s the synopsis…
The book that defined the cyberpunk movement, inspiring everything from The Matrix to Cyberpunk 2077.
The sky above the port was the color 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 the first book in Gibson’s Sprawl series, published in print and eBook in the UK by Gollancz. There is also a SF Masterworks edition of the novel — the novel won the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards.
Gollancz also publishes the other three novels in the Sprawl series, in print and eBook: COUNT ZERO, MONA LISA OVERDRIVE, and BURNING CHROME.
The author’s latest novel is AGENCY, the sequel to THE PERIPHERAL — both are published in the UK by Penguin.
