The Narrative Construction of Cyberspace: Reading "Neuromancer," Reading Cyberspace Debates.
Punday, Daniel
College English, v63 n2 p194-213 Nov 2000
Suggests that William Gibson offers a way to negotiate the conventional discursive elements used within online communication. Notes that cyberspace discourse appears to be at its best not when it tries to minimize the effects of the conventional narratives from which it is built, but instead when it exploits those discourses most fully to reveal their sources and conflicts.
