William Gibson Interview: His Buzz Rickson Line, Tech Wear, and the Limits of Authenticity
Gibson on retro revivals, reproducing vintage gear, and Japanese fashion brands. Lots on technical clothing overlapping with the street. Lots of interesting detail, too.

Paris Review - The Art of Fiction No. 211, William Gibson
"Coming up with a word like neuromancer is something that would earn you a really fine vacation if you worked in an ad agency. It was a kind of booby-trapped portmanteau that contained considerable potential for cognitive dissonance, that pleasurable buzz of feeling slightly unsettled." There is so, so much in this interview, that quoting it feels somewhat futile. It's a really lovely thing piece, that goes far beyond cyberpunk, and delves deep into Gibson's writing and history. There are at least five meaty quotes I wanted to yank; it's worth reading and rereading.

"...HG Wells, had [this] huge, leisurely 'here and [now]' from which to contemplate what might happen. Wells knew exactly where he was and knew he was at the centre of things.' Wonderful William Gibson quotation.
