Having swallowed whole the concept of cyberspace and eaten up the novels and short stories of William Gibson in the 1980s – Burning Chrome and the Sprawl trilogy – Neuromancer, Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive – I finally got to phone interview him  in 1990 and then meet him in the flesh ( with Bruce Sterling), at the Groucho Club,  for  the launch of their co-authored steam-punk classic The Difference Engine. Three years later he was back in town for the launch of Virtual Light, at which time I conducted a video interview with him  in the offices of the tv production company Kudos. It has yet to see the light of day. Read my extensive accounts of both encounters here:
