" This text refers to the Digital edition. Enter the world of a terrifying high-tech future gone awry, a world where computer chips are implanted directly into the brain of a child, where artists hide underground like hunted prey, and where a new force has invaded Earth's Computer Matrixa force that's playing for keeps . . . Count Zero Interrupt. Count Zero is the sequel to the award-winning novel, Neuromancer. HC: Arbor House. William Gibson's prose, astonishing in its clarity and skill, becomes high-tech electric poetry. A vividly imagined future. Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc. Gibson's first novel, Neuromancer, was greeted with hosannas and showered with awards. This second book, set in the same universe, again offers a faddish, glitzy surface not unlike that of Miami Vice. Gibson's central image is the shadow boxes constructed by the artist Joseph Cornell, collections of seemingly unrelated objects whose juxtaposition creates a new impression. In the same fashion, the novel has three protagonists, each of whom is putting together jigsaw clues in pursuit of his separate goal. The corporate headhunter, the art dealer and the computer hacker all find themselves being manipulatedjust as the author contrives to have their paths converge. This book is less appealing and less verbally skillful than Gibson's first novel, dense and dour as that was, but readers who liked that one will want to see this as well. Bobby Newmark is entirely human: a rustbelt data-hustler totally unprepared for what comes his way when the defection triggers war in cyberspace. With voodoo on the Net and a price on his head, Newmark thinks he's only trying to get out alive. A stylish, streetsmart, frighteningly probable parable of the future and sequel to Neuromancer.
