Praise

Praise for Agency
 
“Engaging, thought-provoking and delightful… [Gibson] can always be counted on to show us our contemporary milieu rendered magical by his unique insights, and a future rendered inhabitable by his wild yet disciplined imagination.”—The Washington Post

“Superb… Each sentence is a hand-turned marvel of compact characterization, world-building and sardonic wit, all used to illuminate his vivid milieus…Gibson has an inexhaustible supply of tricks, new stories and new ways of telling them that make him the most consistent predictor of our present, contextualizer of our pasts and presager of our possible futures.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“An immersive thriller, fueled by an intelligent, empathetic imagination.”—The Boston Globe

“A sensual, remarkably visual ride, vigorous with displays of conceptual imagination and humour.” The Guardian (UK)
 
“Gibson blurs the line between real and speculative technology in a fast-paced thriller that will affirm to readers that it was well worth the wait.”—Booklist

“His language (half Appalachian economy, half leather-jacket poet of neon and decay) is all about friction and the gray spaces where disparate ideas intersect. His game is living in those spaces, checking out the view, telling us about it.” – NPR.com

“In Agency Gibson offers another of his uncannily plausible imaginings of near-future life and technology…with Gibson’s trademark panache, the story rattles along with great pace and suspense.” –The Sunday Times (UK)


Praise for William Gibson

“His eye for the eerie in the everyday still lends events an otherworldly sheen.”—The New Yorker
 
“William Gibson can craft sentences of uncanny beauty, and is our great poet of crowds.”—San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
 
“Like Pynchon and DeLillo, Gibson excels at pinpointing the hidden forces that shape our world.”—Details
 
“Gibson’s work is all edge and chill and incipient panic…There’s not a speck of filler, not a hint of anachronism. Just sleek, high-gloss, hand-tooled cool…His worlds are so striking, so plausible, that you’re just happy to be along for the ride—until suddenly it hits you: Maybe you’re being followed.”—Chicago Tribune
