- The Sprawl trilogy (also known as the Neuromancer, Cyberspace, or Matrix trilogy) is William Gibson's first set of novels, composed of Neuromancer (1984), Count Zero (1986), and Mona Lisa Overdrive (1988).
Definitely readable, especially Neuromancer. Opening line: The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel…Apr 16, 2012
- The Sprawl Trilogy has a sacred space on my shelf next to the Lord of the Rings.Apr 16, 2012
- Read 'Neuromancer', then if you think it's pretty decent, plow through the other two, which also contain keen ideas.Apr 16, 2012
- The cyberpunk trilogy. “A complex, bizarre, and unique vision of the near future, with a kaleidoscopic mix of politics, pop, and paranoia.” —Bruce Sterling
“John Shirley was cyberpunk’s patient zero, first locus of the virus, certifiably virulent. A Carrier.”—William Gibson
