Facts Author: William Gibson Year of publishing: William Gibson's debut novel Neuromancer gained a cult-status very soon after its publishing by being one of the first novels in a new science-fiction genre called Cyberpunk. So it has become "the definitive cyberpunk book" and the most famous cyberpunk novel of all the time. Neuromancer was book of the year in the USA, and it also gained 3 sci-fi literature awards: the Hugo , the Nebula , and the Philip K.

Dick Memorial Awards. Although Gibson used the word " cyberspace " first time in his story " Burning Chrome " already in , in Neuromancer he presented the whole idea of a global information network called the Matrix.

There is corruption everywhere and the essence of being human seems to be slipping away. In his novel Gibson portrays not only what the future of technology may hold, but some of the negative externalities that directly effect human nature and social interaction.


In fact, Gibson focuses almost entirely on the ugly aspects of technology which is in contrast to his "matrix". Gibson totally neglects to represent any positive aspects of new technology.

The society of "Neuromancer" seems to be utterly advanced in terms of technology. However, upon closer inspection this is not exactly the case. There is no evidence of successfull technology in Gibsons novel. The society of "Neuromancer" willingly allows itself to be directly controled by technology.

They create incredible technologies and then use them for evil and material gain, rather than for their social well being.

Neuromancer shows the power of technology and how it can control society without producing positive benefits. There are the "antique" movie studios trying to capture the authentic Hollywood style by utilizing the relics of our generation's greatest icon -- Jar Jar Binks.

The Law is a bit different on the West Coast, as everybody is a star -- seriously, customs operates primarily on a "casting call" system.

All of our personal data, browser history and more "creative" searches were all made public on the day the "cloud" burst. To overcompensate for this breach in privacy, everyone begins wearing masks and adopting new persona. It's the inverse of "," a society where no one is watched.

Give someone a mask ay they'll show you their true face, however, as people end up having multiple pseudonyms "Nyms" in order to explore life. With this experimentation comes alienation, as having multiple Nyms makes it impossible to truly connect with individuals. Enter P. It's these little touches that make the work not just feel like fiction, but a glimpse into the future.

This results in four unique story arcs that each hit in a different way, while still retaining previously established mythos to keep you enthralled. In this quarantine quarrel we witness one man's rise and fall, starting out as a relatively innocent plague-bearer before being upgraded to Ellis Island Quarantine Death-Camp member, before going full G-Man of the Apocalypse.

Though each "" story arc has a different feel, they each manage to stealthily slip in a thought provoking societal issue, like a crime drama about a surgeon who turns their victims into surgically modified monsters is actually about gender identity. Meanwhile, Cowboy Detroit is now under Sharia law.

The plague arc on the other hand may just be a secret "Crossed" origin story.

Our favorite moments include a wordless excursion to SuperHarlem to download an illegal handgun and an impossible one-note orchestra of 32 wailing mechanized tea kettles. The thrill is in being touched Opened up Hiding in padlocked hallways in the dark.

We want to touch We just can't figure out how to do it. We lost the words for it.

Then we forgot the question. Constable Led Dent, or Teddy, is more machine than man, unable to exist outside of the net before craving a taste of sweet lady Internet. Cybernetic enhancements allow Teddy to be an effective Constable, however, perpetuating the cycle of cyber-drug addiction.

Two different approaches to the world of , where "Death Race" is a convenient method of suicide and self respect is sold by the gram.

Created with a heavy manga influence, "Tokyo Ghost" is jaggedly sharp, oozing with high octane action -- like being stabbed with a Ritalin-shiv. Oh, did we mention "Tokyo Ghost' is hilarious? God-tier levels of vulgarity, and all we're allowed to say is "ballfarts," and a "Sandlot" reference.

Geof Darrow's art is intricately riveting -- like getting fitted for a robot arm levels of riveting -- telling more than words ever could.

Incidentally, here's the plot: assassin robots. The beauty of "Hard Boiled" is in what is not said. Countless lives are spent in Nixon's ultra-violent campaign as collateral damage that goes unnoticed.

Much of the city is one big parking garage. There's a public orgy but with chainsaw-men ripping up couples at random -- and not a single word is given in explanation.

It's all so common, so basic, it's not worth dialogue. In fact, the main antagonist of "Hard Boiled" doesn't even speak, ostensibly bored throughout. Nixon is designed to take out just one person, and yet every op of his has splash pages filled with innumerable bodies. In the dump scene, there's a child skeleton in a fridge Did you just make a "Cyberpunky Brewster" joke, "Hard Boiled?

Thompson Spider Jerusalem, but looking kind of like Grant Morrison reporting on all of the crazy stuff going on in a nebulous sort of Future.

Seriously, not only does no one in The City know what the date is, not a single date is given during this entire journalistic comic series, thus making sure Spider Jerusalem's weekly Word columns perpetually remain relevant. Ultimately, "Transmetropolitan" ranks so high for simply covering every Cyberpunk trope there is in the book -- sometimes literally, as Spider owns a copy of "Hard Boiled.God-tier levels of vulgarity, and all we're allowed to say is "ballfarts," and a "Sandlot" reference.
