Biolabs and Hosaka zaibatsus fight it out for world domination; computer cowboys like Turner and Count Zero are just foot soldiers in the great game: useful but ultimately expendable.
When Turner wakes up in Mexico - in a new body with a beautiful woman beside him - his corporate masters let him recuperate for a while; then reactivate his memory for a mission even more dangerous than the one that nearly killed him: the head designer from Maas Biolabs says he wants to defect to Hosaka; and it's Turner's job to deliver him safely.
Best-known for his seminal sf novel NEUROMANCER; William Gibson is also a master of short fiction. Tautly-written and suspenseful; BURNING CHROME collects 10 of his best short stories with a preface from Bruce Sterling; co-Cyberpunk and editor of the seminal anthology MIRRORSHADES. These brilliant; high-resolution stories show Gibsons characters and intensely-realized worlds at his absolute best. Contains Johnny Mnemonic (filmed starring Keanu Reeves) and title story Burning Chrome - both nominated for the Nebula Award - as well as the Hugo-and-Nebula-nominated stories Dogfight and The Winter Market.
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.
