  3. Neuromancer - Tape 4, side 2

    William Gibson Reads Neuromancer

    The author Ray Bradbury is

    one of the early science fiction authors that moved science fiction

    into a literary form.

    As a writer Bradbury constructs beautifully

    written stories and novels.

    Bradbury’s writing is in stark contrast

    to Bradbury as a speaker.

    The first time I heard Ray Bradbury speak

    was at the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) yearly conference

    in Los Angeles in the 1980s.

    Hearing Bradbury speak is an almost

    painful experience.

    The pictures that Bradbury can paint with the

    written word seem to be entirely missing when Bradbury speaks.

    He is

    halting, awkward and does not seem to know where he wants to go

    in his talk.

    In contrast to Bradbury, listenting to William Gibson has the feel of

    his written work.

    The same complex world view and sentence structure

    is there, although not as finely edited.

    An example of this can be

    found in the documentary made about William Gibson, No Maps for these Territories.

    This documentary includes extensive interviews with William Gibson.

    No Maps also provides a glimpse of the way Gibson looks at the

    interconnections and relationships in the world around us.

    This view

    of Gibson’s mind shows us his genius.

    The mirror between William Gibson’s spoken voice and his written voice

    gives special force to his readings of his work.

    Early in his career

    Gibson did an abridged reading of Neuromancer, his first novel

    and the work that made him famous.

    It was in this novel that Gibson

    coined the term cyberspace.

    This reading was only published on

    audio-tape and is now out of print.

    I hate the idea that Gibson’s wonderful reading of Neuromancer

    should be lost or inaccessable.

    I was only able to hear it because

    the Mountain View (California) Library had a copy.

    Fortunately I’ve

    been able to find an MP3 copy of these audio tapes.

    They can be

    downloaded below.

    I am only providing these MP3s because the original has been out of

    print for years.

    As a software engineer I believe that I should be

    paid for my work.

    If I hold this view then it is only reasonable that

    I should also believe that artist should be paid for their work.

    All

    of the software and music I own I have paid for (or is open source).

    I would prefer that the publisher re-issue the audio-tape of William

    Gibson’s reading in a more modern format (perhaps CD) and that William

    Gibson collect royalties on this work.

    Gibson’s reading has been out

    of print so long that I can only assume that this is unlikely to

    happen.

    If you’re a fan of William Gibson I hope that others will mirror these

    files as well so that they will never be lost.

    This reading was published on four magnetic tape audio cassetts.

    These have been re-recorded in MP3 format:

    An

    on-line copy of William Gibson’s Neuromancer

    Neuromancer is one of the few books that I’ve read many times.

    All of

    Gibson’s books are good (well, except for The Difference

    Engine, but that’s Bruce Sterling’s fault).

    Neuromancer is

    still in print, so you should go out an buy a copy if you want to read

    it.

    Writers pay their bills from the royalties from book sales.

    I’ve

    included the link above in case you want to get a feel for the book

    before you buy it (even paperback books are not cheap these days).

    I should also believe that artist should be paid for their work.

    All

    of the software and music I own I have paid for (or is open source).

    I would prefer that the publisher re-issue the audio-tape of William

    Gibson’s reading in a more modern format (perhaps CD) and that William

    Gibson collect royalties on this work.

    Gibson’s reading has been out

    of print so long that I can only assume that this is unlikely to

    happen.

    If you’re a fan of William Gibson I hope that others will mirror these

    files as well so that they will never be lost.

    This reading was published on four magnetic tape audio cassetts.

    These have been re-recorded in MP3 format:

    An

    on-line copy of William Gibson’s Neuromancer

    Neuromancer is one of the few books that I’ve read many times.

    All of

    Gibson’s books are good (well, except for The Difference

    Engine, but that’s Bruce Sterling’s fault).

    Neuromancer is

    still in print, so you should go out an buy a copy if you want to read

    it.

    Writers pay their bills from the royalties from book sales.

    I’ve

    included the link above in case you want to get a feel for the book

    before you buy it (even paperback books are not cheap these days).

    William Gibson Reads Neuromancer

    The author Ray Bradbury is

    one of the early science fiction authors that moved science fiction

    into a literary form.

    As a writer Bradbury constructs beautifully

    written stories and novels.

    Bradbury’s writing is in stark contrast

    to Bradbury as a speaker.

    The first time I heard Ray Bradbury speak

    was at the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) yearly conference

    in Los Angeles in the 1980s.

    Hearing Bradbury speak is an almost

    painful experience.

    The pictures that Bradbury can paint with the

    written word seem to be entirely missing when Bradbury speaks.

    He is

    halting, awkward and does not seem to know where he wants to go

    in his talk.

    In contrast to Bradbury, listenting to William Gibson has the feel of

    his written work.

    The same complex world view and sentence structure

    is there, although not as finely edited.

    An example of this can be

    found in the documentary made about William Gibson, No Maps for these Territories.

    This documentary includes extensive interviews with William Gibson.

    No Maps also provides a glimpse of the way Gibson looks at the

    interconnections and relationships in the world around us.

    This view

    of Gibson’s mind shows us his genius.

    The mirror between William Gibson’s spoken voice and his written voice

    gives special force to his readings of his work.

    Early in his career

    Gibson did an abridged reading of Neuromancer, his first novel

    and the work that made him famous.

    It was in this novel that Gibson

    coined the term cyberspace.

    This reading was only published on

    audio-tape and is now out of print.

    I hate the idea that Gibson’s wonderful reading of Neuromancer

    should be lost or inaccessable.

    I was only able to hear it because

    the Mountain View (California) Library had a copy.

    Fortunately I’ve

    been able to find an MP3 copy of these audio tapes.

    They can be

    downloaded below.

    I am only providing these MP3s because the original has been out of

    print for years.

    As a software engineer I believe that I should be

    paid for my work.

    If I hold this view then it is only reasonable that

    I should also believe that artist should be paid for their work.

    All

    of the software and music I own I have paid for (or is open source).

    I would prefer that the publisher re-issue the audio-tape of William

    Gibson’s reading in a more modern format (perhaps CD) and that William
