William Gibson Narrates Book Trailer for Zero History

In the book trailer embedded above, novelist William Gibson reads a passage from his upcoming novel, Zero History. The book arrives on September 7th, finishing a series of novels that includes Pattern Recognition and Spook Country.

Instead of reenactments, the trailer mixes imagery and text from the book–what do you think?

Here’s more from io9: “this new book trailer will make you want to get to reading it right now. When he tweeted about the trailer last night, Gibson joked that “some geezer” is reading the lines from his novel in this trailer. Yes, that would be Gibson himself.”
