Sales Will Be Spook-y Good

Author William Gibson is credited with having coined the term “cyberspace,” and having envisioned both the Internet and virtual reality before either existed. While I was in the old neighborhood bookstore yesterday I performed a bit of clairvoyance myself: Gibson’s latest book, Spook Country, is going to be a big seller this summer.

Pictured is River City Books’ display of the latest effort by one of the country’s top science fiction writers. “Spook Country” is now available in paperback.

The reviews so far are terrific. Says the Washington Post Book World, one of several leading bookish authorities to offer praise: “A devastatingly precise reflection of the American zeitgeist.”

Not sure if I will post again before the holiday commences. I hope you and yours have a safe, fun one. If you need a read before the long weekend you know where to go!
