William Gibson's classic Sprawl trilogy includes NEUROMANCER which stands alongside BRAVE NEW WORLD and 1984 as one of the twentieth century's most potent novels of the future. Cyberspace and virtual reality were invented within these books, changing forever the way we look at tomorrow and providing the inspiration behind the blockbuster film THE MATRIX. The Matrix: a world within a world, a graphic representation of the databanks of every computer in the human system; a consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate users in the Sprawl alone. And by Case, computer cowboy, until his nervous system is grievously maimed by a client he double-crossed. Japanese experts in nerve splicing and microbionics have left him broke and close to dead. But at last Case has found a cure. He's going back into the system. Not for the bliss of cyberspace but to steal again, this time from the big boys, the almighty megacorps. In return, should he survive, he will stay cured. This bundle includes: NEUROMANCER, COUNT ZERO and MONA LISA OVERDRIVE… (more)

    The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi (rrees)
    rrees: Gibson's global world of dirty cities and high technology are generally more optimistic that that of the Windup Girl but the styling is similar and the weaving stories of people and corporate interests are similar.

Omnibus van drie romans uit de 'cyberpunk'-science fiction. Dit is SF die gebaseerd is op de toekomstige mogelijkheden van de informatietechnologie. Ze speelt zich af in een supersnelle samenleving van metropolen die halve continenten omspannen, een economie die geheel beheerst wordt door enkele multinationals en een communicatietechnologie die de hele aarde omspant. Plaats van handeling is voor een groot deel de 'matrix-ruimte', d.w.z. de microscopische wereld van computerprogramma's en -bestanden. 'Zenumagier' gaat over een man die illegaal opereert in een internationaal netwerk; 'Biochips' over een jongen die als 'computercowboy' allerlei netwerken afstroopt; 'Mona Lisa Overdrive' over een misdadiger die zich genesteld heeft in een netwerk. Alle drie de romans gelden als klassiek in de sf-wereld, maar de waardering ervoor is natuurlijk sterk afhankelijk van de interesse van de lezer in de informatietechnologie. Zie voor afzonderlijke aanbiedingen a.i.'s 90-04-127-5, 90-30-185-4 en 91-28-178-4. Normale druk.
