Winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer is a science fiction masterpiecea classic that ranks as one of the twentieth centurys most potent visions of the future.

Case was the sharpest data-thief in the matrixuntil he crossed the wrong people and they crippled his nervous system, banishing him from cyberspace. Now a mysterious new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run at an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, a mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case is ready for the adventure that upped the ante on an entire genre of fiction.

Until a shadowy conspiracy offered him a second chance--and a cure--for a price....
