Gerald Alva Miller Jr.’s Understanding William Gibson is a thoughtful examination of the life and work of William Gibson, author of eleven novels and twenty short stories. Gibson is the recipient of many notable awards for science fiction writing including the Nebula, Hugo, and Philip K. Dick awards. Gibson’s iconic novel, Neuromancer, popularized the concept of cyberspace. With his early stories and his first trilogy of novels,Gibson became the father figure for a new genre of science fiction called “cyberpunk” that brought a gritty realism to its cerebral plots involving hackers and artificial intelligences. This study situates Gibson as a major figure in both science fiction history and contemporary American fiction, and it traces how his aesthetic affected both areas of literature. Miller follows a brief biographical sketch and a survey of the works that influenced him with an examination that divides Gibson’s body of work into early stories, his three major novel trilogies, and his standalone works. Miller does not confine his study to major works but instead also delves into Gibson’s obscure stories, published and unpublished screenplays, major essays, and collaborations with other authors. Miller’s exploration starts by connecting Gibson to the major countercultural movements that influenced him (the Beat Generation, the hippies, and the punk rock movement) while also placing him within the history of science fiction and examining how his early works reacted against contemporaneous trends in the genre. These early works also exhibit the development of his unique aesthetic that would influence science fiction and literature more generally. Next a lengthy chapter explicates his groundbreaking Sprawl Trilogy, which began with Neuromancer. Miller then traces Gibson’s aesthetic transformations across his two subsequent novel trilogies that increasingly eschew distant futures either to focus on our contemporary historical moment as a kind of science fiction itself or to imagine technological singularities that might lie just around the corner. These chapters detail how Gibson’s aesthetic has morphed along with social, cultural, and technological changes in the real world. The study also looks at such standalone works as his collaborative steampunk novel, his attempts at screenwriting, his major essays, and even his experimental hypertext poetry. The study concludes with a discussion of Gibson’s lasting influence and a brief examination of his most recent novel, The Peripheral, which signals yet another radical change in Gibson’s aesthetic.

Preaching After God

Preaching After God is written for progressive preachers trying to find ways to effectively communicate with those who increasingly identify as "the nones," i.e. those who aren't sure what to make of God and/or Christianity, including those who believe in God some of the time, or none of the time, or all of the time, which Snider tends to think includes all of us some of the time and some of us all of the time. By drawing on the insights of several prominent postmodern theologians and philosophers, Snider provides possibilities for preaching that highly resonate with postmodern listeners who are often suspect of religion. Six lectionary-based sermons are included as examples.
