William Gibson to Discuss His Book AGENCY via Zoom (1/27)
Author William Gibson is celebrating the paperback release of his novel, AGENCY (Berkley), with a virtual event hosted by the University Bookstore at the University of Washington via Zoom on Wednesday, January 27 at 9:00 pm (ET).
AGENCY, Gibson’s newest science fiction thriller, is a sequel to his novel, The Peripheral, and heavily influenced by our most current events. Gibson shares, “AGENCY is a sort of connector. It’s universal because it’s designed to cope with anything – whatever is happening in the next few years short of complete nuclear destruction – in which case it won’t matter.”
William Gibson is credited with having coined the term “cyberspace” and having envisioned both the Internet and virtual reality before either existed. He is the author of Neuromancer, Count Zero, Mona Lisa Overdrive, Burning Chrome, Virtual Light, Idoru, All Tomorrow’s Parties, Pattern Recognition, Spook Country, Zero History, Distrust That Particular Flavor, and The Peripheral. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with his wife.
