The Matrix is a world "within" the world, a global consensus-
hallucination, the representation of every byte of data in
cyberspace... Case had been the sharpest data-thief in the
business, until vengeful former employees crippled his nervous
system. But now a new and very mysterious employer recruits him for
a last-chance run. The target: an unthinkably powerful artificial
intelligence orbiting Earth in service of the sinister
Tessier-Ashpool business clan. With a dead man riding shotgun and
Molly, mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case embarks
on an adventure that ups the ante on an entire genre of fiction.
Hotwired to the leading edges of art and technology, Neuromancer
ranks with 1984 and Brave New World as one of the century's most
potent visions of the future.
