In these three works, Gibson explores the dark, dark world of marketing, advertising, and trend forecasting. Unsurprisingly, it’s pretty scary stuff.

William Gibson's most notable works are his Cyberpunk related novels.  Neuromancer being one of his first and most well known in this genre.  I love his writing style, but it's hard to acclimate to at first.

He also wrote the screen play for Johnny Mnemonic.

His latest novels are a departure from the gritty, hip cyberpunk world.  I think his first departing novel is related to national security.

I liked his earlier stuff much more. I still enjoy his work, but everything after Count Zero has been downhill, IMO.

Still around.

Yep, some of his cyberpunk work has been like a bright flare and some interesting, but anticlimactic.

All Tomorrow's Parties and Neuromancer are my fav's.  I agree that Count Zero was weaker than most.
