Praise For Zero History

Zero History is his best yet, a triumph of science fiction as social criticism and adventure."— 

“[Gibson] weaves an unnerving tapestry of technology, violence and anxiety.”—The Daily Telegraph (London) “Fascinating.”—The Seattle Times “Uncanny.”—San Antonio Express-News “Brilliant, entertaining, and bittersweet.”—io9 (

Zero History is another smartly scouted roadmap of alternate routes through today’s global culture, as powered by what a friend of mine used to call the military-industrial-greeting-card complex. It’s a world where cool is king, but also the key to power—and the future.”—Milwaukee Sentinel Journal
