You Feelin’ Cyber, Punk?

Get into the mind of William Gibson


Ask any aficionado to list the foundational texts of cyberpunk and you will surely hear mention of William Gibson's 1984 debut novel, Neuromancer.

Since those early days, the present has made great strides towards catching up with Gibson's imagined future.

The Alibi caught up with Gibson through the magic of cellular technology in advance of his upcoming talk at the Albuquerque Public Library. In other words, the future is almost here.
