Wait. Take a moment to adjust your expectations.

Are you a William Gibson fan already? Good. (If not, maybe you're about to be -- but you'll just have to use your imagination for this next part.)

Ponder, for a moment, how brilliant Gibson is, at his best. Imagine his most evocative writing, his most incisive predictions for the future, his most believable characters, his most information-dense world-building. Remember the way it felt to read Neuromancer for the first time. Try to imagine Gibson writing a book as prescient as that, in 2014.



You can expect this book to be that good and you won't be let down. In fact, it will probably still blow your mind.
