The Gibson-Gulker Conundrum

The Gibson-Gulker ConundrumSo, the last time we were waiting for William Gibson’s then-latest novel, Spook Country, we were uncertain we’d be around to read it. We made it handily into 2007, though, and enjoyed the book.

However, this time around things are considerably more iffy. True, Gibson’s latest, Zero History is due out September 7, which, while not far away, is still perilously close to my neuro-oncologist’s best guess at my longevity, given current circumstance.

We’ve already pre-ordered our copy. Kindle edition, naturally, since it will arrive more quickly…

    Hey friend, your courage, elegance, grace and determination have lead you to share your experience with us in such an intimate manner. While far away and not in close contact, I have been at your side through your words. Thank you for all your previous kindnesses like bringing the Space Shuttle to life for my students and for your friendship.

    My great pleasure, if I touched your life, Cloud. The Pasadena gang has been much in my thoughts, lately…

    Depressing deadline. Don’t know how this is going to go. The last time someone we knew even remotely died, we left our day job & walked around the block crying pretty hard. God lately has only had 1 answer to every challenge for us. This answer frequents Palo Alto. We don’t really have any faith in it or understand it but sure wish it would work this 1 time.

    In literary terms, October 10th is a day I hope you see. 101010 in binary notation is 42 , which as you know is the “Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything.” Like any good writer, you leave us wanting more. Congratulation on the legacy that is this blog. Many will weep when the final words are noted, but you will live forever in the heart and minds of those you have touched.

    Hey, Chris,
    What are you and Linda going to do with

    What if….she and your editor friends put together a Blogging Toward Heaven book with words and pix from Silicon Valley, Provence, etc., etc.?


  6. Nicely said, Alan. Cathy, you have a good idea there.

    You see, Chris, we’re not going to gracefully let you leave us. We will miss you too much. Your postings have too much heart and deep thought and wonderment in them for us to willingly stop learning from them.


  7. I can’t think of a better incentive for anything than a new William Gibson novel. Hang in there, man.
