William Gibson Reading Challenge

William Gibson Reading Challenge

The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) recently named William Gibson the 35th recipient of the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award for lifetime achievement. In celebration of that milestone we've kicked off the William Gibson Reading Challenge.

Gibson was a major player in the cyberpunk movement and influenced many writers so in this challenge we'll be reading Gibson's works and anything cyberpunk, or inspired by Gibson, by other authors. Use your best judgement on what counts or ask in the forum if you're not sure.

Notes

  • Mix and match books any way you want
  • Short stories, novellas, and novelettes are allowed
  • Re-reads are OK
  • Reviews are optional but encouraged
  • You must include at least one book by a woman author
