william gibson rewrote the sequel to the peripheral after the 2016 election / bo


william gibson's next novel, agency, comes out in january 2018; it's a near-future science fiction story set in the world of the peripheral in which "a gifted 'app-whisperer' is hired by a mysterious san francisco start-up and finds herself in contact with a unique and surprisingly combat-savvy ai." in an interview with the verge, gibson explains that after the 2016 us presidential election, he was moved to rewrite the novel's ending in order to bring his future into line with the one we seem to be careening toward. how did you come to the decision to connect agency to the peripheral, as opposed to creating a completely standalone novel? given trump’s election, our time-track seemed all the more likely to be the real past of the two successive futures in the peripheral. more importantly, i






gibson faces crucial start for twins in struggling season


kansas city, mo. – kauffman stadium is where it all began for kyle gibson.now it could be where his fate is sealed.gibson won his major league debut against the royals in 2013, giving up two runs over six innings, and the twins hoped their first-round pick in 2009 was going to be a stalwart in their rotation.but 102 starts into his career, gibson is 32-41 with a 4.72 era. he's 0-3 this season and has the second-highest era in baseball (9.00) among starters who have thrown at least 17 innings. that's after going 6-11 with a 5.07 era last season.it has come to this: gibson might need a solid, if not a strong, outing against the offensively challenged royals on friday to ensure his future in the rotation, team personnel have indicated.under the new leadership of chief baseball officer derek f

goalie john gibson likely to start game 1 of playoffs


the questions about bouncing back have come at john gibson even though he’s answered them on the ice. no, he hasn’t found his game again because he never lost it.in his three starts since he came back from injury, gibson has a 1.32 goals-against average and stopped 97 of 101 shots. he’s taken the net back with such little ambiguity it seems likely he’ll be the ducks’ starter for game 1 of the playoffs. ducks coach randy carlyle guards his starting-goalie strategy like nuclear launch codes, and gibson says he’s indifferent. but gibson summed up his season with brevity.“i’ve been here the whole year,” gibson said. “i got hurt for a month.”during that time, jonathan bernier made it interesting with a 10-0-2 record and 1.82 goals-against average in march. there was a window when a goalie contr

twins lose to tigers 5-3 as gibson gives up five runs in the fourth


detroit – the preludes to impending disaster are so impressive for kyle gibson. but the detonations are so flammable.gibson has thrown seven marvelous innings in his two starts this season, with barely a whisper of a threat. he’s thrown two others, though, that have undone all that good work. on wednesday, the powder keg erupted in a five-run fourth inning and came in the form of a grand slam by andrew romine, the decisive blow in the twins’ 5-3 loss to the tigers.“just like [tuesday] — one swing beat us,” said second baseman brian dozier, who contributed his first home run of the season. “that’s the way this game can be. we play well, we pitch well, and we’d have two wins here except for two swings. you’ve got to have that mike tyson knockout punch, and they’ve had it. we haven’t.”romine’

taj gibson leaves bulls for thunder with head high and job well done


in 2001, on the draft night the bulls traded him to the clippers for the draft rights to tyson chandler, elton brand made the almost unprecedented move of returning to the berto center to address reporters.given that taj gibson has a similar reputation to brand's as honest, upbeat, selfless and accessible, it shouldn't surprise that the heart-on-his-sleeve gibson did the same thursday afternoon.hours after practicing and leaving the advocate center and hours before the thunder sent a private jet to whisk him and doug mcdermott to oklahoma city, gibson returned to the practice facility with mixed emotions."every day i came to the locker room and saw my name on the back of a bulls jersey was a dream come true," gibson said.

cleveland gets to gibson, beats twins 3-1


kyle gibson’s a nice guy, maybe too nice. he’s always such a gracious host when the indians are in town.the righthander has faced cleveland at target field once in each of his five seasons with the twins, and he’s uniformly generous. which is a nice way of saying the twins are 0-5 in those games.on monday, gibson put a runner on base in each of the six innings he pitched, surrendered a team-leading fourth home run, and left the twins resigned to their fifth loss in seven games, 3-1 to the defending american league champions.gibson actually reduced his era by more than a run, from 8.00 to 6.91, but it was hardly an encouraging start, since he worked his way into various degrees of trouble in each inning. a three-hit third inning by the indians, highlighted by francisco lindor’s double and a

'it's not working': twins demote gibson after another poor outing


the twins are utilizing rochester’s staff on saturday for a new fifth starter. while they’re at it, they will need a fourth starter, too.kyle gibson, a fixture in the twins rotation since his 2013 debut, pitched four more chaotic innings in a substandard season thursday and provoked the team into taking action. his next start will be for the class aaa red wings, he learned after an 8-5 loss to oakland, and a current minor leaguer will take his spot.“it’s not working. [he’s] putting us in a bad spot more times than not,” twins manager paul molitor said after breaking the news to the 29-year-old that he was being optioned out. “i still have faith in him, but we need to give him an opportunity to work things out.”the twins did that, of course, for the first month of the season, but the righth

fort myers, fla. – kyle gibson went to the mound on friday with a new delivery and a new catcher.and he came away pleased about both as he pitched 1⅔ scoreless innings during the twins 3-1 loss to tampa bay in the spring training opener for both teams.gibson threw 29 pitches, throwing first pitch strikes to five of the eight batters he faced. he threw fastballs and changeups, and realized he’s got some tinkering to do with his sinker to regain the movement that he accustomed to getting. but he’s pleased with how his arm responded after his first outing. he was removed after giving up a single on his final pitch.“it feels a little bit easier, just getting some different momentum shifts,” gibson said. “my arm feels good and i was able to take some stress off my back. once you get into game s

anaheim, calif. – kyle gibson entered angel stadium on friday night from the right-field corner while carrying a box filled with sacks of hamburgers.not just any hamburgers, but in-n-out burgers. they are unavailable in the midwest, but the neatly wrapped and flavor-packed meatwich is much-loved fare in this end of the country.and gibson had teammates chowing down on them before they warmed up for friday’s game against the angels.their bellies full of greasy energy, the twins went out and scored seven runs in three innings on their way to beating the los angeles angels 11-5, giving them victories in the first two games of this series.after the twins offense belted three two-run homers, it was gibson who needed to do his part. the righthander has only shown incremental progress since return






gibson posts another strong outing in twins' 2-1 loss to cardinals


twins’ gloves shine to back up gibsonjupiter, fla. – kyle gibson on thursday looked sharp on the mound, but he needed a little help from his defense.several twins players made nice defensive plays behind gibson, enabling him to pitch five strong innings during the twins’ 2-1 loss to st. louis. gibson gave up one run on one hit, a jedd gyorko home run in the fourth, to lower his spring training era to 2.08.gyorko’s homer was about the only ball that wasn’t caught by someone. outfielders danny santana, j.b. shuck and zack granite all made nice plays, with shuck racing in to make a diving catch of kolten wong’s sinking fly in the first and, two batters later, santana racing to the wall in left to haul in gyorko’s drive.third baseman ehire adrianza dived to his right in the fifth to grab a gro

postgame: gibson suspected tigers were stealing, relaying signs


    a couple more interesting tidbits from the twins’ blowout loss and sorry end to a 2-7 homestand:    kyle gibson made a mistake by giving alex avila too good a pitch in the second inning, a pitch that landed 400 feet away in the right-field seats. he didn’t make excuses, but he had an interesting explanation for the pitch: the tigers caused it.    well, sort of. the twins suspected the tigers had been stealing their signs, and relaying them to hitters, throughout the series. so whenever a detroit runner reached second base, gibson said, he and catcher jason castro would change the signs. “just wanted to make it harder on them,” gibson said. “good, veteran clubs do that.”    one problem: when danny santana’s two-base error allowed justin upton to reach second, gibson got confused by the






postgame: despite lost weekend, twins righthander gibson pitched better


some quick notes after the weekend debacle:kyle gibson pitched the best game of any twins starter in this series. that tells you how the pitching went this weekend. gibson gave up three runs over six innings and pretty much stopped everyone not named edwin encarnacion. it looks like gibson is trying to figure things out. "i think he had a good mix today, for the most part," twins manager paul molitor said. gibson was unpredictable, especially with his first pitches. gibson threw first pitch strikes to 17 of the 27 batters he faces, according to my figures. and he fired first pitch strikes to 12 of the final 16 batters he faced. he still nibbled at times. but not as much as past outings. he has to continue to eliminate mistake pitches - or get encarnacion out of the league. but he pitched l

gibson demoted to class aaa after twins clipped by oakland 8-5


the twins will dip into rochester’s starting staff on saturday for a new fifth starter. now they will have to do so for a fourth starter, too.kyle gibson, just a couple of hours after manager paul molitor said “he’s going to have to find ways to improve,” allowed four runs and eight hits in a laborious four innings thursday, and the twins missed an opportunity to sweep the athletics. oakland scored off three twins relievers, too, and beat minnesota, 8-5 before an announced crowd of 19,247 at target field.the twins, trailing by three, loaded the bases with one out in the ninth inning off santiago casilla, but jorge polanco popped out and miguel sano struck out for the fourth time.after the game, gibson was sent to class aaa rochester.gibson needed 79 pitches to eke out 12 outs, and left run






sano's "mental break" lasts 2nd day; gibson gets another chance vs. rays


    not many pitchers get the opportunity kyle gibson has today. an awful april cost him his major league job, and when rainouts forced the twins to call him back up, he managed to raise his era from 8.20 to 8.62 in baltimore. but with phil hughes injured, gibson is once again the recipient of a huge opportunity: he’ll start today against the rays, and if he pitches well, it’s not hard to picture him remaining in the rotation awhile.    he’s earned these opportunities with the flashes of effectiveness he’s shown in the past, particularly in a promising 2015 season and again in spring training this year. but those instances are two years ago, or were exhibition games, so patience is running out.    paul molitor chose to put a positive gloss on gibson’s six-run, five-inning outing against th
