Review:

‘A fistful of fast, challenging, hot-wired short stories’
New Musical Express

‘Furiously inventive, brilliantly written, the cutting edge of sf’
Guardian

‘Some subversives are still at work proving that SF can pack its strongest blows into its shortest works… He’s at his best dealing with the victims of the new, the people burnt out by drugs, computers, huge corporations or the strangeness of space’
Fiction Magazine

‘At once a lament and a critique, these stories show the way SF is being rewired. Gibson, his finger jitteringly on the fast-forward button, shows the direction in which our literature might be headed’
The Times

From the Back Cover:

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 – not only within the genre. Gibson in the nineties is the unchanged guru, prophet and voice of the new cybernetic world order and virtual reality. The stories, with their vivid cast of lowlife characters in an intensely realised high-tech world, paint an instantly recognisable portrait of the modern predicament.

‘A fistful of fast, challenging, hot-wired short stories.’
