Idoru - a gripping techno-thriller by William Gibson, bestselling
author of Neuromancer'Fast, witty and cleverly politicized'
GuardianTokyo, post-event:After an attack of scruples, Colin
Laney's skipped out on his former employer Slitscan - avoiding the
rash of media lawyers sent his way - and taken a job for the outfit
managing Japanese rock duo, Lo/Rez. Rez has announced he's going to
marry an 'idoru' by the name of Rei Toi - she exists only in
virtual reality - and this creates complications that Laney, a net
runner, is supposed to sort out. But when Chai, part of Lo/Rez's
fan club, turns up unaware that she's carrying illegal nanoware for
the Russian Kombinat, Laney's scruples nudge him towards trouble
all over again. And this time lawyers'll be the least of his
worries . . .William Gibson is a prophet and a satirist, a black
comedian and an outstanding architect of cool. Readers of Neal
Stephenson, Ray Bradbury and Iain M. Banks will love this book.
Idoru is the second novel in the Bridge trilogy - read Virtual
Light and All Tomorrow's Parties for more.'Sharp, fast, bright . .
. a must' Arena'A classic technothriller . . . lean, evocative,
tense' Wired'Luxuriate in prose simultaneously as hard and laconic
as Elmore Leonard's and as glacially poetic as JG. Ballard's . . .
an exhilarating ride' New StatesmanWilliam Gibson's first novel
Neuromancer has sold more than six million copies worldwide. In an
earlier story he had invented the term 'cyberspace'; a concept he
developed in the novel, creating an iconography for the Information
Age long before the invention of the Internet. The book won three
major literary prizes. He has since written nine further novels
including Count Zero; Mona Lisa Overdrive; The Difference Engine;
Virtual Light; Idoru; All Tomorrow's Parties; Pattern Recognition;
Spook Country and most recently Zero History. He is also the author
of Distrust That Particular Flavor, a collection of non-fiction
