Author: William Gibson
Publisher: Hachette UK
The book that defined the cyberpunk movement, inspiring everything from The Matrix to Cyberpunk 2077. The sky above the port was the colour of television, tuned to a dead channel. William Gibson revolutionised science fiction in his 1984 debut Neuromancer. The writer who gave us the matrix and coined the term 'cyberspace' produced a first novel that won the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards, and lit the fuse on the Cyberpunk movement. More than three decades later, Gibson's text is as stylish as ever, his noir narrative still glitters like chrome in the shadows and his depictions of the rise and abuse of corporate power look more prescient every day. Part thriller, part warning, Neuromancer is a timeless classic of modern SF and one of the 20th century's most potent and compelling visions of the future.

The firsttime reader of Gibson's Neuromancer will immediately be struck with vocabulary that is unfamiliar. This vocabulary places the setting distinctly in the future and contributes to the strangeness of the text.

Through the madness I shuffle. A wretched shell of the man I was when her love possessed me. Lucifer has given me one chance at redemption. I am compelled to drag myself to the dusty finish line. Compelled by the love I have somewhere in my drowning heart and by the curiosity of a new adventure that will, one day, surely kill me. This is the story of William Control.
In the real world of Neuromancer, most of its members are cloned, cryogenetically frozen or have medically altered DNAs. The fact that these technologies are very expensive shows the incredible richness of the society.

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1 (very good), Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg (Institut für fremdsprachliche Philologien), course: Cyborgs (WS 2001/2002), 4 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper is about William Gibson's famous novel "Neuromancer". Neuromancer was the book that initiated the cyberpunk debate, a debate that was very influential in culture studies and modern literature. The cyberpunk debate created a more suspicious image of new technologies and their effect on the role of the human being as well as the social life and the society. Gibson's position towards the mind-body-problem, i.e. the relation between mind and body, is examined. An overview is given of possible technologies he describes and how they trigger the breakdown between man and machine as well as between individuals. The paper also sketches the effects of those technologies on social interaction, moral values and the structure of the society.

Lesson Plans for Creative Dance: Connecting With Literature, Arts, and Music is a resource for physical educators, classroom teachers, and dance specialists as well as a useful supplement to college level elementary education courses.

This book puts the controversy into the context of earlier debates about the two cultures, between F.R. Leavis and C.P. Snow, and Mathew Arnold and T.H. Huxley.
