cover of 'virtual light'

Virtual Light, Gibson's fifth novel, is the beginning of Gibson's revised vision of the future. Gibson starts a new trilogy in a more tame and more probable future. Although very keen on the newest achievements of electronic and information technology, this book is more like a 'post-cyberpunk' than a conventional cyberpunk novel. ¶
