A recommendation from new Flip Side blogger and sci-fi fan Danielle Capalbo, a Northeastern student working at the Globe this semester:

In 1982, William Gibson coined the term "cyberspace." Two years later, Ace Science Fiction published his celebrated debut novel, "Neuromancer," and Gibson became the father of cyberpunk. He's endured a quarter-century of reality from then to now, and his imagination has only grown darker and wilder. The best-selling author makes his rounds in Boston early next week to read at the Brattle (Sunday, Aug. 19 at 6 p.m.) and the Coolidge (Monday, Aug. 20 at 6 p.m.) from his ninth novel, "Spook Country." Grab tickets while you can - the sci-fi legend has a reputation as impressive as his visionary body of work. Plus, tickets are just $5.
