Burning ChromeBook - 2003
Ten short stories by the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Neuromancer deal with a human memory bank, UFOs, sleep machines, interstellar travel, a Soviet space station, and computer crime in such works as "Johnny Mnemonic" and the title tale. Reprint.
Best-known for his seminal sf novel Neuromancer, William Gibson is actually best when writing short fiction. Tautly-written and suspenseful, Burning Chrome collects 10 of his best short stories with a preface from Bruce Sterling, now available for the first time in trade paperback. These brilliant, high-resolution stories show Gibson's characters and intensely-realized worlds at his absolute best, from the chip-enhanced couriers of "Johnny Mnemonic" to the street-tech melancholy of "Burning Chrome."
