London, Gollancz, 1984. The first British, and first hardcover edition, of Gibson's first novel, the book that defined the cyberpunk genre and in doing so won the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Philip K. Dick Award -- a literary "triple" which had never before been accomplished. Signed by the author. Gibson has been credited with coining the term "cyberspace" in 1982, to refer to computer-generated realities. Neuromancer was first published in the U.S. as a paperback original. Timothy Leary and William Burroughs reportedly worked on adapting the novel to software, as the first of the "Mind Movies" to go with Leary's "Mind Mirror" software. Fine in a fine dust jacket. A beautiful copy of a landmark book. From the collection of Bruce Kahn. [#911038] SOLD
