William Gibson, father of 'cyberpunk'

    Newer Older

    This author had such an influence on my life and the way I 'feel' about technology. A great moment for me to talk, shake his hand and snap this picture. 'Neuromancer' is really a milestone in sci-fi as well as 'Pattern recognition' (even though he refutes the sc-fi label for its later novels).

      You are so very lucky to have met him.

      His books are historic milestones of the genre.

      Excellent photo.

      Best pic of the man I've seen. Well captured.
      Love all the negative space you've left around the face, very fitting.
