"I'm and entertainer in the military-entertainment complex." - Bruce Sterling, polemicist, provocateur, futurist, "visionary in residence", Bruce Sterling has been out there, personally sharpening the cutting edge of science fiction for more than thirty years. from his first story "Man-Made Self"- in 1976 to his latest "Kiosk" in 2007, Sterling has written science fiction that is fast moving, sharply extrapolated, technologically literate, and as brilliant and cohesive as a laser, as he himself once said of William Gibson. His Shaper/Mechanist" stories were an essential part of the "cyberpunk" movement of the 80's, just as his "Leggy Starlitz" and "Chattanooga" stories wrangled the near future of the 90's better than anyone else. Whether writing about the deep future in Schismatrix or the deep present in Holy Fire, he has developed into the best science fiction writer working in the world today. Born in Texas in 1954, Sterling has traveled the globe writing and working for The New York Times, Nature, Wired, Newsday, and a number of industrial design magazines. His short fiction has appeared in almost every major publication in the science fiction field. His novels include far future adventures Involution Ocean and The Artificial Kid, Schismatrix, John W. Campbell Memorial Award winner Islands in the Net, The Difference Engine, Heavy Weather, Holy Fire, Distraction, and The Zenith Angle.
