SPECIAL 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION—THE MOST IMPORTANT AND INFLUENTIAL SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL OF THE PAST TWO DECADES
Twenty years ago, it was as if someone turned on a light. The future blazed into existence with each deliberate word that William Gibson laid down. The winner of Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer didn't just explode onto the science fiction scene—it permeated into the collective consciousness, culture, science, and technology.
Today, there is only one science fiction masterpiece to thank for the term "cyberpunk," for easing the way into the information age and Internet society. Neuromancer's virtual reality has become real. And yet, William Gibson's gritty, sophisticated vision still manages to inspire the minds that lead mankind ever further into the future.

Books don't get better than this!
If you live in the modern world... If you use a computer... If you have ever been "on" the Internet... If you like a good story... If you like strong, vivid prose... Then you must read this book.
First book I downloaded via iBooks. Gibson's descriptions of the near future are virtually prophetic. A pleasure to read ebooks on the iPad. Now please bring "Virtual Light"; that is my favorite novel.
Gibson is insightful
It's hard to believe this book was written in 1983. It could have easily been composed in 1993, 2003 or 2013. The view of the future is dead on and in many ways we're still catching up. Excellent work and highly recommended.
