William Gibson's new novel is Zero History.
From his Q & A with Anna Metcalfe for the Financial Times:
Where do you write best?Read the complete Q & A.
At home for the most part but when stuck I resort to a laptop in a coffee shop – the busier the better.
What is the strangest thing you’ve done when researching a book?
The strangest are life experiences that turn into research. For Zero History I participated in the brainstorming of a new brand, for a clothing manufacturer involved in military contracting.
What are you scared of?
Racism, sexism, nationalism, tribalism, fundamentalism (about anything at all), the excesses of religion, self-satisfied ignorance.
Gibson's Neuromancer appears on Annalee Newitz's list of "Thirteen Books That Will Change The Way You Look At Robots" and Andrew Crumey's top ten list of novels that predicted the future.
