I discovered William Gibson back in the eighties. I honestly don’t remember the year, but I was still of a tender and impressionable age. I devoured Neuromancer and many of the books that followed. I’ve drifted away from his most recent novels, but lately I have been following him on twitter and he provides a window into all kinds of interesting cultural observations. So, as his latest book is a collection of short essays and quasi-journalistic works, I figured that I should give it a try and see what I thought.
