A portrait of William Gibson in the British Library before taking part in a seminar entitled 'Who owns the story of the Future?' organised by the Eccles Centre for American Studies, on 24 May 2011.
William Gibson's first novel was Neuromancer (1984), and his fiction since then has dealt with virtual environments, the internet and steampunk dystopia. He was the first to use the word cyberspace in its current form.
