Distrust That Particular Flavor - an acclaimed nonfiction collection by William Gibson, best-selling author of Neuromancer.
William Gibson was writing fiction when he predicted the internet. And as his stories bled into reality, he became one of the first to report on the real-world consequences of cyberspace's growth and development.
Now, with the dust settling on the first internet revolution, comes Gibson's first collection of nonfiction - essays from the technological and cultural frontiers of this new world. These and many other pieces, collected for the first time in Distrust That Particular Flavour, are studded with revealing autobiographical fragments and map the development of Gibson's acute perceptions about modern life. Listeners of Neal Stephenson, Ray Bradbury and Iain M. Banks will love this book.
"Gibson is a prophet and a satirist, a black comedian and an astounding architect of cool. He's also responsible for much of the world we live in." (Spectator)

good for Gibson fans
After a while, the various pieces start to overlap in theme, and while they sometimes hint at revelations about the connections between various Gibson plots and reality, it doesn't go much beyond the idea that the books are really set in the present.
