The Matrix is a world within the world, a global consensus- hallucination, the representation of every byte of data in cyberspace . . .

Case had been the sharpest data-thief in the business, until vengeful former employees crippled his nervous system. But now a new and very mysterious employer recruits him for a last-chance run. The target: an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence orbiting Earth in service of the sinister Tessier-Ashpool business clan. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case embarks on an adventure that ups the ante on an entire genre of fiction.

Hotwired to the leading edges of art and technology, Neuromancer ranks with 1984 and Brave New World as one of the century''s most potent visions of the future.

Read from the Book

Chapter 1   The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.             “It’s not like I’m using,” Case heard someone say, as he shouldered his way through the crowd around the door of the Chat. “It’s like my body’s developed this massive drug deficiency.” It was a Sprawl voice and a Sprawl joke. The Chatsubo was a bar for professional expatriates; you could drink there for a week and never hear two words in Japanese.             Ratz was tending bar, h is prosthetic arm jerking monotonously as he filled a tray of glasses with draft Kirin. He saw Case and smiled, his teeth a webwork of East European steel and brown decay. Case found a place at the bar, between the unlikely tan on one of Lonny Zone’s whores and the crisp naval uniform of a tall African whose cheekbones were ridged with precise rows of tribal scars. “Wage was in her early, with two joeboys,” Ratz said, shoving a draft across the bar with his good hand. “Maybe some business with you, Case?”             Case shrugged. The girl to his right giggled and nudged him.             The bartender’s smile widened. His ugliness was the stuff of legend. In an age of affordable beauty, th

About the Author

William Gibson was born on March 17, 1948 in Conway, S.C.. He grew up in a small town in Virginia and developed an interest in science fiction. He dropped out of high school and moved to Canada, where he eventually graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1977. Gibson earned his place in science fiction literary history with the publication of Neuromancer in 1984. Considered the first breakthrough novel written in the cyberpunk style, it won the three major science fiction awards; the Phillip K. Dick, The Hugo, and the Nebula. Set in the fast-paced world of the information superhighway, Gibson shows the negative effects of dealing with technology in cyberspace. His other works, including Mona Lisa Overdrive and the screenplay for the film Johnny Mnemonic, are filled with cynicism, high technology, and underground countercultures.

From Our Editors

In celebration of its ten-year anniversary, cyberpunk classic Neuromancer comes to hardcover, with an all-new introduction by the author. "Freshly imagined, compellingly detailed and chilling in its implications".--New York Times. "The first novel to win SF's triple crown--the Hugo, the Nebula, and Philip K. Dick awards".--Time.
