:"Idoru redirects here. For the Japanese phenomenon, see Japanese idol.":"Idoru redirects here. For the rock band, see The Idoru.""Idoru" is the second book in William Gibson's Bridge trilogy. "Idoru" is a science-fiction novel set in a postmodern, dystopian, cyberpunk future. The main character, Colin Laney has a talent for identifying nodal points, analogous to Gibson's own:

:"Laney’s node-spotter function [from Idoru] is some sort of metaphor for whatever it is that I actually do. There are bits of the literal future right here, right now, if you know how to look for them. Although I can’t tell you how; it’s a non-rational process."

As of 2006, an anime adaptation of "Idoru" is rumoured to be in the early stages of development. [ [http://www.nowplayingmag.com/content/view/3595/2/ Now In Play Magazine article detailing the film adaptation.] ]
