William Gibson…

SF Diplomat has a lot to say about the new William Gibson Novel, read all about it here.

If you are a Gibson fan I would like to know what you think about the comments made here – I have to date only read two Gibson’s Neuromancer and The Difference Engine (with Bruce Sterling). I have heard good things about Pattern Recognition and Spook Country is the sequel to that one…

I suppose once I read them I too can make comment.

But I can see from reading the Raymond E Feist Riftwar series that it gets a little old as time goes past – what was once a great series full of adventure and new exciting polt twists becomes a little boring and stale… but the first books are still great reads after a few times. Why is that? Is it the writer getting old or the material?

Food for thought I guess.
