Jeter and James Blaylock, and biopunk or alternatively ribofunk, in which Paul Di Filippo is prominent. First published in 1984 and preceded in 1982 by the short story ‘Burning Chrome’ (where Gibson coined the term ‘cyberspace’ as a ‘mass consensual hallucination in computer networks) the genre’s breakout film is Ridley Scott’s Bladerunner. I wrote Neuromancer on a manual portable typewriter and about half of Count Zero on the same machine.

However, Spinner, the Prober to whom Carey is directed, is one of many Artificial Intelligences who believe that possession of these leaked substances--usually by theft--will lead an AI to transcendence. Rafael Miranda Huereca states: In this fictional world, the unison in the hive becomes a power mechanism which is executed in its capillary form, not from above the social body but from within. This movie focuses on the theme of self identity, where the hero struggles to determine whether he is his true self as Vincent, as he was born, or whether his cover as Jerome can ever really become his 'true' self.

Adapted from a story by Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett. Cyberpunk is closely related to Steampunk and Alternate History sci-fiand often the sci-fi genres are swapping themes. and is it difficult to categorize a book. Author and editor Damon Knight summed up the difficulty, saying "science fiction is what we point to when we say it", [3] a definition echoed by author Mark C. Not unlike the radical cultural critics of the Frankfort School, these writers were disturbed by the ways in which the mediated culture of the post-War era seemed to encourage mass conformity and blind consumption.

William Gibson, an American transplanted to Vancouver, is the best known of the cyberpunk writers. Since I’m transcribing that section… what Brandon says is “If you want to see it in cinema, you can watch Blade Runner…” “It” could refer to Neuromancer, but I think “it” just meant cyberpunk — he was talking about places that you could go to read/see cyberpunk. Also when I look back at it, there was a whole number of author writing in that genre about dystopian futures, AI, convergent tech, before the term became popular. – scope_creep Jan 17 '11 at 20:11

Dick precisely envisioned the world of the early twenty-first century, a world that did not inherit flying cars, but which endures such Dickian devices and themes as implanted memories, commercialized personalities, dislocation, and disintegrating realities. I have this as an old Ace double, back to back (and upside down from each other), full of pulpy goodness--ancient technology, body-switching, tribes from the Drylands of Mars massing for war, a world with space travel and interplanetary mining concerns, where the light of the two moons of Mars glints off swords, spears, and mail.

After a disastrous war, the only point of contact allowed between the two is the Paidhi, the chief Human translator, who oversees the handover of Human tech to the Atevi. Published by Macmillan, it is the first story in Cho’s Sorcerer Royal historical fiction trilogy. Arslan is the claustrophobic, violent story of a driven, brutal and charismatic man's vision of ecological salvation. I guess the movie 'hackers' would be an example here.

I prefer a more traditional (albeit a bit messier) way of thinking about the “types” – as subgenres, or groups of stories that share similar conventions and approaches that represent a narrow, but recognizable and popular or trendy, piece of the entire genre. All science fiction is about the era in which it’s written in some way, but nowadays the tropes of cyberpunk are less useful as a tool for futurism than as a means by which present, contemporary dread of dystopia and collapse can be directly written about, heightened, and examined.

There are also women whose fiction is decidedly not feminist. This kind of story, which might be able a woman getting stranded on an alien planet, is generally about our struggles against all of the normal challenges in our life. Lest we become deluded in a swoon of emotional idealism, it should be remembered that this conception of cyberspace is a metaphysical ideal, and has only marginal relation to what is modernly termed "cyberspace". This is whether your story is being told in the past, present, or future.
