Doctorow Raves About Gibson’s “Zero History”

Posted in Books, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Writing with tags , , , , , , , on September 6, 2010 by ghostradioworld

William Gibson‘s latest novel Zero History has its official release tomorrow (9/7/10), but it’s already scored a rave from creative commons advocate and science fiction novelist Cory Doctorow.  He calls the novel Gibson’s “best yet” and even explains why:

What makes Zero History into Gibson’s best so far is how absolutely perfectly he captures the futuristic nature of the present day. Milgrim — a junkie dried out after a ten year fugue of living rough and stealing to buy pills — is well-suited to this task, emerging as if from a time-machine into the 21st century in full swing, able to narrate its essential strangeness without seeming contrived. But all of Gibson’s characters are in the business of understanding how we got to this futuristic present, and on every page, there is a jolt of pleasant dissonance as Gibson does the conjurer’s trick of making you look at your surroundings with fresh eyes.

This is Gibson’s ninth novel.  Read the rest of Doctorow’s review here.  And check out the nifty trailer after the jump …

Their take:

I do dabble a bit into horror, so this is more appealing to me. The premise reminds me of an actual late-night call-in radio show, Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell. I used to hear the last half-hour on the way to work, back when I worked on a military base and had to get in ridiculously early. It was all about UFOs and the paranormal. As in this novel, I always suspected that Art Bell was a skeptic.

Texas Military Members Investigate Paranormal Phenomena

WICHITA FALLS, Texas — Night is falling over farms along the Red River and, now, every October sunset feels like Halloween.

While other families gather closer to their hearths, the Military Paranormal Investigations group is getting ready to visit a graveyard.

Organized less than a year ago, this group of U.S. military members and their families is one of a growing community of men and women nationwide who are interested in looking at the supernatural through scientific eyes. No mediums or psychics are involved, and MPI members said they have approached each of their nearly 20 investigations as skeptics ready to disprove a myth.
