Cyberpunk is widely known for its telling use of detail, its carefully constructed intricacy, its willingness to carry extrapolation into the fabric of daily life. My earliest memories are of moving from project to project, every year or so, as this company built Levittown-like suburbs in Tennessee and North Carolina. This pervasive use of psychotropic drugs raises similar questions of mind and reality to those raised by high-tech.

In the ’70s Joanna Russ, Marge Piercy, Ursula Le Guin, Suzy McKee Charnas, and Sally Miller Gearhart negotiated—rather boldly, given such a readership—a political and artistic trajectory from ’60s feminism to its enthusiastic articulation in specifically feminist utopias. Do readers often ask you to explain things about your books you yourself don’t understand? The persistent cyberpunk obsession with the mixture of flesh (called "meat" in the novel) and machinery is introduced through Ratz's stainless steel teeth--unnatural looking but commonplace in Communist Eastern Europe.

However, since the world is much cleaner, and with the show's magic being used for good purposes in addition to the bad, it doesn't fully fit. Many influential films such as Blade Runner and the Matrix trilogy can be seen as prominent outgrowths of the genre's styles and themes. Are you glad you wrote a book that had so much 9/11 in it? It does really crank up the "humans will be humans" aspect with an entire social structure/economy based around how much people like you, similar to Facebook.

I can’t promise that this time it’ll make your socks go up and down, but it just might… Our first issue of 2016 provided a glimpse of the year ahead in Australian speculative fiction, listing release dates for adult science fiction and fantasy across many subgenres. The series later provided inspiration and a literary category for French writer Jules Verne, who is often regarded as the father of science fiction. When I looked again the kids were gone, the demo program was trashed, and in its place they'd left me with something that had the Model 1 jumping through hoops.

It was indicative that America was shown in the best possible light (i.e., life in the countryside, in “the Heartland” was portrayed – which appeared far more traditionalist than it does today).

The term "cyberpunk" entered the literary landscape in 1984 to describe William Gibson's pathbreaking novel "Neuromancer." Examining the ways in which the body is gendered in its interactions with new technologies of corporeality, Technologies of the Gendered Body counters the claim that in our scientific culture the material body has become obsolete. With its bleak future, cybernetic body modification and evil megacorporations, The Stars My Destination set up a number of themes that became central to later cyberpunk works.

Why do you think Gibson chose Atlanta as media headquarters? In Stephenson's Snow Crash the Metaverse infinitely reproduces the Las Vegas Strip, the district that epitomizes a real city that has been helping to "start the twenty-first century" (Rothman 2002). While I suspected that wasn’t really sustainable, I couldn’t think of anything else to do. The technology depicted in these stories is often a logical (although perhaps undesirable) continuation of the technology that is already present in our society, amplified to become completely ubiquitous.

I have no idea what I am supposed to talk to these people about. In science fiction circles, "cyberpunk" is a genre that often features countercultural antiheroes trapped in a dehumanizing high-tech future. While this flood of pharmaceutical-grade cyberpunk during the mid-to-late ’80s marked what could be considered its Golden Age, plenty of shallow imitations and derivative works appeared as well. Dick's works contain recurring themes of social decay. and the influential cyberpunk movie Blade Runner (1982) is based on one of his books. means a work of combining neo-noir and science fiction or cyberpunk.
