Overview

Before email,

before the world wide web,

before hackers,

Before sexting,

before always-on GPS,

before titanium implants,

before Alexa, Cortana, and Siri,

before the computer in your pocket was more powerful than the one that sent astronauts to the moon,

there was cyberpunk.

And science fiction was never the same.

Cyberpunk writers—serious, smart, and courageous in the face of change—exposed the naiveté of a society rushing headlong into technological unknowns. Technology could not save us, they argued, and it might in fact ruin us.

Now, thirty years after The Movement party-crashed the scene, the cyberpunk reality has largely come to be.

The future they imagined is here.

With an introduction by Victoria Blake and stories by: William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, Jonathan Lethem, Kim Stanley Robinson, David Marusek, Benjamin Parzybok, Cat Rambo, Paul Tremblay, Pat Cadigan, Gwyneth Jones, Mark Teppo, Greg Bear, Lewis Shiner, Rudy Rucker, James Patrick Kelly, John Shirley, Daniel H. Wilson, Paul Di Filippo, and Cory Doctorow.

Welcome to your cyberpunk world.
