New Gibson book in the works?

I just ran across this article by the Man himself William Gibson about Japanese culture and its genesis, and the link between it and English culture. I liked the article, but what caught my eye was the tagline, which hinted at a new book.


The tagline reads:
William Gibson is the author of All Tomorrow's Parties, and the forthcoming Pattern Recognition, both Penguin UK.
Which would indicate (to me, anyway) that Gibson is coming out with a new book Pattern Recognition, from Penguin UK. I hadn't heard about this, and Goggle came up dry--it turns out there was a researcher into pattern recognition in the '60s named Gibson, which makes searching kind of difficult. Does anyone know anything about this?

By the way, check out this review of No Maps For These Territories by Andrew Leonard on salon.com

What *I* want to know is when "No Maps" is coming to NYC. I would love to see that.

No Maps (3.00 / 1) (#3)

I saw No Maps For These Territories when it was here in SLC at Slamdance a couple months ago. This is definitely a must see for any Gibson fan, or anybody that is interested in media, culture, or technology.

After the showing, the director said that they will be releasing a DVD sometime this year with the complete film, plus a ton of extra footage that didn't make it into the final cut.

The dude is truly a visionary.
