William Gibson is known primarily as a novelist, with his
work ranging from his groundbreaking first novel,
Neuromancer, to his more recent contemporary bestsellers
Pattern Recognition, Spook Country, and Zero History. During
those nearly thirty years, though, Gibson has been sought
out by widely varying publications for his insights into
contemporary culture. Wired magazine sent him to Singapore
to report on one of the world's most buttoned-up states. The
New York Times Magazine asked him to describe what was wrong
with the Internet. Rolling Stone published his essay on the
ways our lives are all "soundtracked" by the music and the
culture around us. And in a speech at the 2010 Book Expo, he
memorably described the interactive relationship between
writer and reader.
These essays and articles have never been collected-until
now. Some have never appeared in print at all. In addition,
Distrust That Particular Flavor includes journalism from
small publishers, online sources, and magazines no longer in
existence. This volume will be essential reading for any
lover of William Gibson's novels. Distrust That Particular
Flavor offers readers a privileged view into the mind of a
writer whose thinking has shaped not only a generation of
writers but our entire culture.
William Gibson lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with
his wife. He is the author of Neuromancer, Count Zero, Mona
Lisa Overdrive, Burning Chrome, Virtual Light, Idoru, All
Tomorrow's Parties, Pattern Recognition, Spook Country, and
