William Gibson’s “Art of Fiction” Interview From Paris Review Is Now Online

I like William Gibson and consider him more interesting than most writers. I like his work, and I’m interested in how he’s transcended genre to become a nearly mainstream celebrity as exemplified by his appearance in a place like Paris Review. He’s a weird, smart, thoughtful guy.

This interview is worth a read if you’re a fan of Gibson, or if you’re a writer in any genre interested in writing process, or if you’re a reader curious about the point where futurism and science fiction intersect with a literary perspective. It covers a lot of ground, and reminds me that of the 20th and now 21st century’s best interviews of fiction writers, most are part of the Paris Reviews “The Art of Fiction” series.
