Neuromancer by William Gibson, explores the theme of alienation, technology, and identity.

The title “Neuromancer” is a combination of two key elements: “neuro” and “mancer.” In this context, “neuro” refers to the nervous system, particularly the brain and its functions, while “mancer” is derived from “necromancer,” which traditionally refers to someone who communicates with the dead or predicts the future.
