Review by Bill Johnston
William Gibson is a name everyone's heard these days even though he hasn't been writing for much more than ten years and has only written four books (as of 1990). I really liked Burning Chrome, and I think Gibson really showed in this collection that can be diverse within his morbid society. Neuromancer, though, was somewhat of a letdown. The ideas may have been original when the book was written, but they were hackneyed by the time I got to it, and the plot was like a good writer detailing a role-playing adventure. These are the only two of his books I've managed to read.
