i count him as among my favorite authors even though i only really LOVED Neuromancer. i’ve probably read it six times, which i can’t say about many books. after my first mind-blowing read of it i tried to move on to other stuff of his and nothing ever felt as good for some reason. i eventually read idoru, all tomorrow’s parties and spook country. i tried to start count zero probably three times and always got kinda bored with it - i don’t really remember why, to be honest, it was over ten years ago now … maybe i’ll give it another shot.
a couple years back he did a reading in seattle. i hadn’t really given much thought to mr. gibson in several years, but i jumped at the chance to see him in person and it was rad. he was reading from his new at the time book The Peripheral, which i bought because they were selling it and i figure why not. i actually thought it was really damn good. i guess that was… 2014? anyone else read that one?
