Best-known for his seminal sf novel Neuromancer, William Gibson is actually best when writing short fiction. Tautly-written and suspenseful, Burning Chrome collects 10 of his best short stories with a preface from Bruce Sterling, now available for the first time in trade paperback. These brilliant, high-resolution stories show Gibson's characters and intensely-realized worlds at his absolute best, from the chip-enhanced couriers of "Johnny Mnemonic" to the street-tech melancholy of "Burning Chrome."

Взрослый мужчина Уильям Гибсон ещё осваивается в роли молодого писателя (как он замечает в беседе с Paris Review, «I was one of those annoying people who know they are going to do something in the arts, but never do anything about it.»), — и шпарит короткие, злые, конденсированные истории.
Ни одного лишнего слова, всё по делу.
Обязательны, на мой взгляд, истории The Gernsback Continuum – рассказ о фотографе, которого преследуют видения будущего «по Ле Корбюзье»; The Belonging Kind — рассказ, который рекомендую всем, кто занимается социологией повседневности / микросоциологией (он посвящен мастерам мимикрии, облепляющим бары и вечеринки).

collective American subconscious of the Thirties, tending mostly to survive along depressing strips lined with dusty motels, mattress wholesalers, and small used-car lots
And he is a devotee of what J. G. Ballard has perceptively called “invisible literature”: that permeating flow of scientific reports, government documents, and specialized advertising that shapes our culture below the level of recognition.
