Synopsis

In The Ultimate Cyberpunk, Cadigan takes readers through the evolution of this influential science fiction genre, from the groundbreaking forefathers of the field such as Alfred Bester, Philip K. Dick and Samuel R. Delany to the founding members of the cyberpunk movement, such as William Gibson, Bruce Sterling and forward through the such innovators as Neal Stephenson, Lewis Shiner and Rudy Rucker. In over 300 pages of stories, Cadigan presents the cyberpunk world in which reality and virtual reality intersect. The growing impact of the Internet on our sense of community, the seduction of a world behind the screen and the inherent dangers of a society in which any information can be hacked, stolen and sold, are some of the topics explored by our best cyberpunk writers.

As a bonus, The Ultimate Cyberpunk includes an exclusive 16-page full color section of the 'lost' second volume of the authorized adaptation of William Gibson's Neuromancer, a novel which to this day remains the defining work of the cyberpunk movement.
