About the Book
Twenty years ago, it was as if someone turned on a light. The future blazed into existence with each deliberate word that William Gibson laid down. The winner of Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, NEUROMANCER didn't just explode onto the science fiction scene --- it permeated into the collective consciousness, culture, science, and technology.
Today, there is only one science fiction masterpiece to thank for the term cyberpunk, for easing the way into the information age and Internet society. NEUROMANCER's virtual reality has become real. And yet, William Gibson's gritty, sophisticated vision still manages to inspire the minds that lead mankind ever further into the future.
Case is a burnt-out hacker living in the Spawl, the bloated urban mass of what used to be the eastern seaboard of the United States. A past job gone wrong damaged his nervous system and removed his ability to "jack in" to cyberspace and he's circling the drain faster and faster every day. Then a strange woman named Molly tracks him down and says her boss can fix him --- if he helps them with one last job.
