All Tomorrow's Parties - a groundbreaking novel from William Gibson, from the bestselling author of Neuromancer

The Bridge, San Francisco, after the quake:

Ex-cop Berry Rydell has been hired by Colin Laney - who is hooked deep into the network of things - to go to San Francisco and act in such a way that he comes to the attention of a certain unspecified individual. This, Laney promises Rydell, could prove life-threatening. And now Rydell's been sent a package. Something that belonged to Laney, something that others with guns, blades and very bad attitudes want. And suddenly Rydell's running, trying get to the old Bridge, the shantytown where a man can get lost, be forgotten and wait for the end of the world - which is the other thing that Laney promised . . .

William Gibson is a prophet and a satirist, a black comedian and an outstanding architect of cool. Readers of Neal Stephenson, Ray Bradbury and Iain M. Banks will love this book. This is the third novel in the Bridge trilogy - read Virtual Light and Idoru for more.

'Scintillating . . . probably the most important novelist of the past two decades' Guardian

'Writing at flame intensity, Gibson conjures a world that seems just a breath away from the here and now'Salon

'With more insight, wit and sheer style than any of his contemporaries Gibson continues to patrol the nebulous zones that separate science fiction, contemporary thrillers and genuine literature' Independent

William Gibson's first novel Neuromancer sold more than six million copies worldwide. Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive completed his first trilogy. He has since written six further novels, moving gradually away from science fiction and futuristic work, instead writing about the strange contemporary world we inhabit. His most recent novels are Pattern Recognition, Spook Country and Zero History, his non-fiction collection, Distrust That Particular Flavor, compiles assorted writings and journalism from across his career.

Rezensionen
All Tomorrow's Parties is immensely engaging, alive on every page and as enjoyable a weekend entertainment as one could want. The Washington Post Book World

Gibson, one of science fiction's greatest literary stylists, is at his best [when] he offers visceral detail even when promising transcendent change a moment in the near future when the fabric of daily life will twist profoundly. Wired

Moves at warp speed...[Gibson] is a witty and compelling storyteller. Los Angeles Times

[A] hard-edged and grimly beautiful piece of work. Chicago Tribune

Gibson has done it again. Time Out New York

A creepily plausible near-future of nanotechnology and virtual-reality pop idols, delineated in Gibson s customary diamond-sharp prose as the plot hurtles toward existential apocalypse. Elle

Ultra-cool cyberpunk...this familiar, vigorous, vividly realized scenario is set forth in the author s unique and astonishingly textured prose. Kirkus Reviews

Gibson s rich protopointillism coins a wireless future where reality is only proxy and proviso. Made all the more beautiful and frightening by its probability, and by characters who somehow tweeze hope from the polymer. Chris Carter, creator of The X-Files
