Twenty years ago, it was as if someone turned on a light. The future blazed into existence with each deliberate word that William Gibson laid down. Neuromancer didnt just explode onto the science fiction scene.
It permeated into our consciousness, our culture, our science, and our technology. The winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer showed us what we were capable of creating and what we were capable of destroying - and illuminated the dark corners of the path we were headed down.
Today, we have this science fiction masterpiece to thank for the term cyberpunk, for easing our way into the information age and Internet society. Neuromancers virtual reality has become our own. And yet, William Gibsons vision still manages to inspire the minds that will take us ever further into the future.
