Hotwired to the leading edges of art and technology,Â NeuromancerÂ is a cyberpunk, science fiction masterpieceâa classic that ranks withÂ 1984Â andÂ Brave New WorldÂ as one of the twentieth centuryâs most potent visions of the future.
The MatrixÂ is a world within the world, a global consensus-hallucination, the representation of every byte of data in cyberspace...
Henry DorsettÂ Case was the sharpest data-thief in the business, until vengeful former employees crippled his nervous system. But now a new and very mysterious employer recruits him for a last-chance run. The target: an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence orbiting Earth in service of the sinister Tessier-Ashpool business clan. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case embarks on an adventure that ups the ante on an entire genre of fiction.
The winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer was the first fully-realized glimpse of humankindâs digital futureâa shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about our technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.
