Who’s going to see speculative fiction writer William Gibson, author of Neuromancer, originator of the term “cyberspace” and prognosticator of the future of Macbooks and refrigerators, at Union Square tonight? The author will be signing copies of his latest book, a collection of nonfiction essays titled “Distrust That Particular Flavor,” at the Barnes & Noble tonight at 7 p.m. The godfather of cyberpunk literature is now 63 years old.
