Just Finished Reading: Zero History by William Gibson

09 Nov

To a new reader, it may not seem like Gibson is a science fiction writer. Starting with Pattern Recognition, Gibson’s writing has been less in the future, closer and closer to the present. Zero History, you might say, takes place at time that is only 17 minutes from now.

I need to go back and re-read both Pattern Recognition and Spook Country. I wouldn’t call these three books a trilogy, exactly, but they are all tied, and together, I’m hoping, they will provide the base for future Gibson writing. But be warned, soon he’ll be writing only seven seconds ahead.
