Writers, get a second life!

After Margaret Atwood's magic pen and book launches with author videos, here's a new trick of the trade:

Over the next few weeks - to celebrate and, yes, promote his new novel Spook Country - we're planning a range of William Gibson activities in Second Life; we're screening his fine and strange movie No Maps for These Territories; there's a competition to design an avatar for the man himself; we're giving away shipping containers packed with Gibson goodies and at the beginning of August, William Gibson himself will be coming into Second Life to read from Spook Country and answer questions.

By the way, William Gibson invented the word cyberspace in his seminal novel Neuromancer in 1984.

Spooked? Get your chills here.
