John Shirley's 1980 classic has been nicely revised, without taking away the stylishness of the first printing. From describing what seems to be the first webcam, to sneaking us inside the rock music world as only he could (he's written songs with Blue Oyster Cult and recorded with The Panther Modems).William Gibson's forward says it best 'John Shirley was cyberpunk's patient zero'. This sci-fi rocks!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
