William Gibson is an American-Canadian author of speculative fiction, including cyberpunk and steampunk. He coined the term “cyberspace” back in 1982 in the short story Burning Chrome. He is perhaps best known for his debut novel, Neuromancer, where he elaborated on and popularized the concept of cyberspace. Gibson left the United States during the Vietnam War in order to avoid the draft, settling in Canada and becoming a full-time writer. Although you would think Gibson would own all of the latest technology, he says that computers themselves don’t interest him, but rather “how people behave around them.”

William Gibson would make his debut as a novelist in 1984 with Neuromancer, although he was writing short stories as early as 1977. Below is a list of William Gibson’s published works in order of when they were originally released:
