NEUROMANCER. London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1984. Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. "Flashy first novel which deals in 'cyberspace' -- the realm where computerized information takes on visible, three-dimensional form. A thriller plot is set against a background of sleazy cityscapes littered with electronic gadgetry. Fast, knowledgeable, and poetic in its effects." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 252. "... the pioneering 'cyberpunk' novel and arguably the most influential SF novel of the 1980s." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-439. Winner of the 1984 Nebula, 1985 Hugo and 1985 Philip K. Dick awards for best novel. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 100. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 423. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#145874).
