William Gibson

William Gibson (born 1948) is an American-Canadian writer who has been called the ”noir prophet” of the cyberpunk subgenre of science fiction. Gibson coined the term ”cyberspace” in his short story ”Burning Chrome” and later popularized the concept in his debut novel, Neuromancer (1984). In envisaging cyberspace, Gibson created an iconography for the information age before the ubiquity of the Internet in the 1990s.
