Neuromancer audiobook, read by William Gibson, online

by Joey deVilla on March 30, 2004

At some point during Gideon Straussblogger convivium last Christmas, I mentioned to him that I used to like programming while listening to a set of MP3s of William Gibson reading Neuromancer.

I kept them on my OpenCola-issued laptop while I worked there, and I

forgot to make a backup copy before dutifully handing it back when I

got laid off.

Gideon, a Gibson fan, asked me to let him know if I ever found more

copies. I’d forgotten about his request until this past weekend, and a

little Googling found me this site and this site, which has 8 MP3s, representing four 90-minute cassettes of the Neuromancer audiobook.

According to this page on the William Gibson Aleph, U2 — one of Gideon’s favourite bands — contributed a track to the audiobook.

Gideon, everyone: enjoy!
