"Ten brilliant, streetwise, high-resolution stories from the man who coined the word cyberspace. Gibson's vision has become a touchstone in the emerging order of the 21st Century, from the computer-enhanced hustlers of Johnny Mnemonic to the technofetishist blues of Burning Chrome. With their vividly human characters and their remorseless, hot-wired futures, these stories are simultaneously science fiction at its sharpest and instantly recognizable Polaroids of the postmodern condition." (Amazon.com review)
This volume contains two of Gibson's most legendary short stories; Johnny Mnemonic and Burning Chrome. It's worth getting for Johnny Mnemonic and a few of the lesser known stories (Red Star, Winter Orbit and New Rose Hotel being personal favorites). Don't get me wrong, the titular story is great, but they should have just done it first. It's not the greatest performance, and it's following some damn tough acts.
