    1 thought on “William Gibson”

    1. This probably rates around 2.5 stars for me overall, mostly likely because I expected more from it than what the text provided. I appreciated the short interview at the end of the collection, and the fact that this provides an overarching look at Gibson's writing career and some parts of his personal life and motivations, it made the text worth reading. However, I found the narrative a bit more difficult to get through than I expected. I read many academic texts and I'll admit that I learned man [...]

    2. Well, someone did their homework, going all the way back into the youthful stories scratched out for sci-fi fanzines and the author's latest tweets, Westfahl seems to be a hagiographic mission to prove that Gibson is all that while also being so beyond his own novels. Hard to tell if Gibson was being elusive for his (official?) biographer as he is portrayed with other interviewers. One thing they both seem intent on proving is that academics don't and won't get his novels they way the average re [...]

    3. Review proof provided by net galleyHot on the heels of William Gibson’s recent essay collection, Distrust That Particular Flavour, comes well-known Locus critic Gary Westfahl’s exhaustive and illuminating author study. Indeed, Westfahl quotes Distrust in the opening paragraph of Chapter 1: Journey To The Future, where he points out Gibson’s noted aversion to “the idea of direct, unfiltered autobiography”. Westfahl comments that Gibson has been “dribbling” out his autobiography over [...]

    4. Since the 1980s, William Gibson has been one of the most influential modern science fiction writers. With books like Neuromancer, The Difference Engine, and Mona Lisa Overdrive, Gibson helped define the cyberpunk genre. Unfortunately, Gary Westfahl’s recent study of Gibson’s writing proves influential works don’t always make interesting subjects. Westfahl is certainly thorough in his study: he covers everything from Gibson’s juvenilia to his novels to his Twitter feed. But the work fails [...]

    5. This is basically just a rehash of my comments from Twitter:Seems like a missed opportunity. Made way too many assumptions. Critical method & language a good thirty years out of date. Often seemed hostile to his subject for not (or not obviously) sharing his interests. I think he misunderstood a lot of things. Mostly I think the book wound up exposing Westfahl's weaknesses as a critic rather than offering (much) insight into Gibson. The book has some value, but not much. I think he'd be more [...]

    6. I was expecting a life a little "more lively", but Gibson's is not so exciting as one might expect from the inventor of cyberspace, at least the one in novels. Interesting, however, for the lovers of his novels, because it provides some background information and then there are other works by the author as the scripts, reviews and articles. A collection almost boundless.Mi aspettavo una vita un po' piú vivace, ma quella di Gibson non é poi cosí eccitante come ci si potrebbe attendere dall'inv [...]
