How William Gibson keeps his science fiction real
The New Yorker
While a lot of sci-fi is obsessed with the distant future, one of the best authors of the genre takes a different approach. The New Yorker explains how William Gibson “has imagined the near future more convincingly than anyone else” to create his stories. That includes his concept of “cyberspace” that first appeared in his work in the early 1980s.
