Distrust That Particular Flavor
Publication Date: January 2012
A new compilation of essays and articles from novelist William Gibson, offering listeners a privileged view into the mind of a writer whose thinking has shaped our culture.
William Gibson is credited with having coined the term "cyberspace," and having envisioned both the Internet and virtual reality before either existed. Many of his descriptions and metaphors have entered the culture as images of human relations in the electronic age, and he has an international reputation as the William Burroughs of the "wired" life. He is the author of Neuromancer, Count Zero, Mona Lisa Overdrive, Burning Chrome, Virtual Light, Idoru, All Tomorrow's Parties, Pattern Recognition, Spook Country, and Zero History. William lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with his wife. Robertson Dean has recorded hundreds of audiobooks in most every genre. He's been nominated for several Audie Awards, won nine Earphones Awards, and was named one of AudioFile magazine's Best Voices of 2010. He lives in Los Angeles, where he records books and acts in film, TV, and (especially) on stage.
"A provocative, surprising look at the lesser-known parts of a sci-fi superstar's writing career." ---Kirkus
