Goonan in particular is long overdue such study. For generations it had been on the margins of our imagination: as the exotic land of cherry blossoms and geishas, later as the war machine sending out kamikaze bomber pilots in World War II, and later still as the source of every sort of cheap, shoddy, imitative gadget. Since Neuromancer, Gibson has become a regular science fiction author and has written several books, most notably the Sprawl Trilogy (starting with Neuromancer), The Difference Engine, and the Bridge Trilogy.

Science fiction often explores the potential consequences of scientific and other innovations, and has been called a "literature of ideas." [1] It usually eschews the supernatural, and unlike the related genre of fantasy, historically science fiction stories were intended to have at least a faint grounding in science-based fact or theory at the time the story was created, but this connection has become tenuous or non-existent in much of science fiction.
