The Science Fiction Writers of America inducts William Gibson as its next Grand Master

Awesome choice indeed!


Well-deserved and such a nice man - I’ve met him(very briefly) at book signings a couple of times and he has always been patient, pleasant, and a great explainer of his writing.

I was organizing my books this weekend and I have a shelf fully dedicated to William Gibson and William Vollmann


I hope they are separate shelves, with 14 other shelves between them


This is completely unexpected and somewhat unacceptable.

How are they just doing this now when he should have been honored with this title at least 10 years ago?

(Yes, he completely deserves the award; it is just long overdue.)


William Gibson definitely deserves it.

…when will they give JG Ballard the recognition he deserves?
