Description


A stylish, street smart, frighteningly probable parable of the future from the visionary, New York Times bestselling author of Neuromancer and Agency.

A corporate mercenary wakes in a reconstructed body, a beautiful woman by his side. Then Hosaka Corporation reactivates him, for a mission more dangerous than the one he’s recovering from: to get a defecting chief of R&D—and the biochip he’s perfected—out intact. But this proves to be of supreme interest to certain other parties—some of whom aren’t remotely human...

Praise For…


“Potent and heady.”—Philadelphia Daily News

Count Zero shares with Neuromancer that novel’s stunning use of language, breakneck pacing, technological innovation, and gritty brand-name realism.”—Fantasy Review

“William Gibson’s prose, astonishing in its clarity and skill, becomes high-tech electric poetry.”—Bruce Sterling

This book stands as such an enormous icon in graphic novels. It’s so iconic in its wit and dry humor and really grabs hold of your heart as soon as you open it! Nimona follows a young shapeshifter of the same name, who is chaotic and full of whim and working hard to become an iconic villain. She enlists as a sidekick to Lord Blackheart, and the two are ready to wreak havoc! But the involvement of a hero, Sir Goldenloin, brings their battle to epic proportions while also bringing out unexpected adventures: good-deeds, kindness, and even love! Noelle Stevenson’s illustration style is so fantastic and perfectly matches the wit with which she crafts the story. This is a re-readable delight!
