"Idoru" - a gripping techno-thriller by William Gibson, bestselling
author of "Neuromancer". "Fast, witty and cleverly politicized".
("Guardian"). Tokyo, 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 Statesman"). William
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
