William Gibson is an American science fiction author living in Vancouver, Canada. He has been writing short stories since the late 70s, and his first novel, Neuromancer, appeared in 1984. Neuromancer very soon gained a cult status by being one of the first novels in a new science fiction genre called cyberpunk. The cyberpunk literature of the eighties had a very pessimistic view of the future, predicting the rise of multinational capitalistic corporations, and showing the negative effects the forthcoming new technologies may have on everyday human life. In Neuromancer, Gibson presented the idea of a global information network called the Matrix, and the term cyberspace, a virtual reality simulation with a direct neural feedback.
