A fascinating collection of short stories, two of which were cowritten with other authors. "Johnny Mnemonic" is probably the most well-known of this collection, but honestly, I thought it was the least-developed, and it's the one I liked the least. "The Gernsback Continuum" was my favorite; I love the utter strangeness in the two worlds melting into each other. "Hinterlands" is another good one, more straight science fiction than Gibson's usual cyberpunk. The title story, "Burning Chrome" is my second favorite, and it's cyberpunk to the core. Gibson is wonderful at creating believable, knowable characters in such a short space.
