Watch William Gibson read from his brand new science fiction novel | William Gibson - Interviews & Non-fiction | Scoop.it

Legendary author William Gibson appeared at the New York Public Library on April 19, 2013 and he read the first couple pages from his futuristic new novel, The Peripheral. Check out the first chapter, "The Gone Haptics." That amazing prose just sticks to your mind.

desertnaut's insight:

From last year's appearance, but good refresh as we approach the publication day of 'The Peripheral' (Oct 2014).
