The io9 Book Club is in session! Let's discuss "Zero History."

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Welcome to the monthly meeting of the io9 Book Club. This month we read William Gibson's new novel, Zero History. Jump into comments to get started talking about it!

For those unfamiliar with the io9 book club, here's how it works: You read the book. We create a special book club post on io9 when the meeting is in session. That would be the post you're reading right now. Then everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days, and you can start doing that right this nanosecond!

Usually the author joins us for a Q&A but sadly Gibson is on tour so his schedule is packed - you'll have to be satisfied with asking him questions via Twitter (he usually answers!). Yes, his enthusiasm for Twitter obviously made it into Zero History, too.


Want to get a headstart on next month's book? It's Palimpsest, by Catherynne M. Valente. (See what we said about it in our review last year.) The book club will meet to discuss it on November 2.


So what did you guys think of Zero History? I loved the idea that there is a world where high-tech paramilitary types rub shoulders with high fashion geeks.
