A Few Gibsonian Words

A short interview with William Gibson here.

I recently finished Spook Country. Like Pattern Recognition before it, it's essentially a cyberpunk science fiction novel that just happens to be set in the unmodified present. You still get that gravid, ambiguous sense that history is shifting under your feet, if you could just make sense of it.

Is anybody else kinda freaked out that Gibson looks more and more like William S. Burroughs as he gets older? Is plastic surgery involved?
