13.12.09 The Aleph has just turned 10! Yes that's right, 10 years ago the site first went online.. incredible! If you're interested check out the Version 1 of the site. ¶
30.07.09 Gibson has announced on his blog that he won't update for the time being as he is busy finishing the new novel "Zero History". ¶
09.08.07 The new novel Spook Country has just been released in the States and in the UK. ¶
11.07.07 The new novel Spook Country will hit the shelves on August 7th (2nd in the UK). Check out the promotion trailer to actually see the man type on a notebook (note the ancient phone!). ¶
06.02.07 Gibson revealed in a blog entry the cover of the upcoming novel Spook Country and the fact that advance reader copies should appear soon. Also, WGa just turned seven! ¶
28.11.06 New page on Spook Country with a brief official description. ¶
13.10.06 News on Gibson's upcoming novel 'SPOOK COUNTRY'  ¶
13.12.05 I found two old zombie versions of my site on previous web hosts (at Angelfire and, even older, at Fortunecity) - now completely cluttered in thick layers of competing internet ads. ¶
12.12.05 Be sure to check out The Agrippa Files, a fascinating, detailed research site. ¶
16.10.05 The European version of 'No Maps For These Territories' is now available on DVD (PAL) (including Dutch, French, Spanish and German subtitles). ¶
06.10.05 I have almost finished my other project expoessays.com for now and am ready to focus on the Aleph once again. According to his weblog, Gibson is now in the process of writing a new novel. He also wrote two articles for Wired magazine recently (article #1 - #2). ¶
18.06.05 No updates because I'm running a new project from the World Exposition in Japan. ¶
23.10.04 Gibson's blog is back on (reason: "At times, to be silent is to lie.")... check it out here. ¶
19.10.04 The Brazilian edition of "Pattern Recognition" ("Reconhecimento de Padrões") will be released by Editora Aleph in December 2004. ¶
26.07.04 The last couple of months saw the release of the Japanese, Polish and German editions of 'Pattern Recognition', respectively titled 'Patân Rekogunishon', ' 'Rozpoznanie Wzorca' and 'Mustererkennung'. The French edition 'Identification des schémas' is due out in September, the Spanish 'Mundo espejo' in November. You can check out the new covers in the Pattern Recognition gallery. If you are aware of any other translations please let me know. If you come upon some other rare stuff, please let me know by email or by posting at the William Gibson Board (I post there sometimes - you'll know me by my handle). ¶
17.02.04 So the aleph's fourth anniversary has passed unnoticed, rightly so because there doesn't seem to be much to celebrate. The last year has seen very few changes at the site, except for an evergrowing number of images in the image gallery (which now contains more than 700 items - whew!). I don't get many mails any more, probably because it's much easier to ask over at the official discussion board where most Gibsonites (including me - you'll know me by my handle) seem to hang out these days. In any case, don't hesitate to contact me if something new comes to your attention, or if you have any further questions. ¶
21.09.03 Some updates: Gibson announced in this blog entry that he will retreat from blogging. He explains that blogging is a 'low-impact activity' which he feels 'would get in the way of writing fiction'. So he might start working on his next project soon - be sure to check this site for updates once in a while. Another new item is the Real Audio streaming video of 'Tomorrow Calling' (based on the short story 'The Gernsback Continuum'), available at the Channel 4 website - I also put up some screenshots. Also, I am still looking for the six book cover scans some nice Hungarian guy sent to me in June (but were lost soon after), could you please re-send them? ¶
30.06.03 Added information on the new German version of the 'Neuromancer' audio book. Apart from that, nearly all issues with the site are cleared. So I guess I'll start my summer vacation now and leave everything else to the discussion board at williamgibsonbooks.com. Have fun! ¶
19.06.03 All right - it's been an insane week as my notebook computer was stolen last Tuesday while djing at a club. I have backups but getting things straight takes lots of time. The only thing I lost were the six book cover scans some nice Hungarian guy sent to me, so if you read this could you please re-send the scans? See you soon when things have settled a bit. ¶
22.05.03 As has been pointed out, the right-hand photograph actually is a young Douglas Coupland. That's not a trick to get into Gibson's blog, just a simple mistake I had been too lazy to correct. Since most visitors probably came to see the 'image-bleedover' I'll leave it for now. ¶
27.04.03 Wonder why no news? 'Cause most of the action is at the official discussion board. ¶
17.03.03 I finally decided to take down the guest book since 95% of the posts were commercial bot spam I don't want to support. There you go. ¶
12.02.03 Item number two arrived today - it's the lost second chapter of the Neuromancer graphic novel (recently published in 'Ultimate Cyberpunk'). I'll put up five scanned pages. ¶
10.02.03 I finished scanning the German version of the 'Neuromancer' graphic novel in high resolution (150dpi). I put up a version with 1/3-sized thumbnails and navigation. ¶
06.02.03 Well well, real world activities kept me busy while the action started. As you probably know, 'Pattern Recognition' hit the stores recently, so get it, it's great. Currently I am working on scanning two new 'special' items not yet on the site (or any other). I promise it's worth looking forward to it, so stay tuned, I'll let everybody know as soon as I post it. ¶
09.01.03 Gibson will do a Pattern Recognition book tour in February, get the dates here. ¶
08.01.03 Be sure to check the discussion board at the official site, it is getting pretty busy lately. Gibson published his first few blogs and promised he will be on the site more or less every day. Prices for 'Pattern Recognition' books at eBay are soaring at 150 dollars. ¶
01.01.03 Happy new year to all of you and all the best in 2003. I rewrote the navigation for faster browsing and compatibility, and I hope you like the new home page. I know I should write the PR review soon, please be patient. ¶
19.12.02 *NOTICE - It's party time from tomorrow on, so good Christmas and New Year to all of you. I know I promised a review and synopsis of 'Pattern Recognition', but real-world activities (mostly drinking & female relations) will keep me from completing those anytime soon - sorry. ¶
19.12.02 Finally there is an official Gibson web site, also check the official discussion board. ¶
15.12.02 *SPECIAL NOTICE - It is time to celebrate! In a few days it's the third anniversary of William Gibson aleph. According to my statistics, this site had over 100,000 visitors in that time - not too bad for a fan site. Have a look at the recently updated Aleph history. Also, continue the support, sign the guestbook, and have a good time, I'm doing this all for you, the fans! ¶

24.09.02 I returned to Germany five weeks ago, only now found the time for an update. There are advance readers copies of 'Pattern Recognition' available at eBay, I'll keep an eye on it. ¶
08.08.02 New page added: Other movie attempts; also added more info on the movies. ¶
06.08.02 The visitor numbers are still about half of what they were before I had to move the site... updating the links takes time, I even lost my Yahoo! listing. Anyway I finished moving everything here after getting fed up with those free webspace providers. ¶
