Synopsis

The flow of information is about to be disrupted…

 

Colin Laney, sensitive to patterns of information like no one else on earth, currently resides in a cardboard box in Tokyo. His body shakes with fever dreams, but his mind roams free as always, and he knows something is about to happen. Not in Tokyo; he will not see this thing himself. Something is about to happen in San Francisco…

 

The mists of San Francisco make it easy to hide, if hiding is what you want, and even at the best of times reality there seems to shift. A gray man moves elegantly through the mists, leaving bodies in his wake, so that a tide of absences alerts Laney to his presence. A boy named Silencio does not speak, but flies through webs of cyber-information in search of the one object that has seized his imagination. And Rei Toi, the Japanese Idoru, continues her study of all things human. She herself is not human, not quite, but she's working on it. And in the mists of San Francisco, at this rare moment in history, who is to say what is or is not impossible…

I have loved everything I have ever read by William Gibson. He is that rare creature - thrill-master, poet and prophet.

Predictions of the 3D printer

It's fascinating and amazing to read about these futuristic machines when Gibson's books are first released. Then it's a little spooky to go back years later and realize that the nanofax is semi-realized in our current 3D printers. Perhaps Gibson himself can see the nodal points?
