really liked it
bookshelves: short-fiction, cyberpunk, science-fiction

Burning Chrome collects Gibson's short fiction into a great, tight bundle. It is all tied together and flows nicely, and it shows his evolution as a writer. Even his early work and the bits I like less are all exactly where they should be. While Gibson is a better novelist IMHO, his short fiction still packs a punch. Well worth reading for any Gibson fans, but perhaps lacking without the context of his longer works.

Of the stories within, Johnny Mnemonic and Burning Chrome are my favorites, and their traces are seen in Neuromancer and Stephenson's The Diamond Age.
