Gibson, William. Agency. New York: Berkley Books (Penguin Group), 2020.
From the ("stub") Wikipedia entry, Agency is a:
'sequel and a prequel' to his [Gibson's] previous novel The Peripheral (2014), reusing the technology from the novel to explore an alternative 2017 where Hillary Clinton won the 2016 Presidential Election. The story line further explores the concept of the "Jackpot", a back-story element of The Peripheral.
One plot is set in the alternative 2017, with a young woman named Verity testing a new form of avatar software developed by the military, for a start-up in San Francisco. A second plot line involves people in a post-apocalyptic 22nd century meddling with 2017.
