The cyberpunk aspects of Shadowrun were modeled in large part on William Gibson's writings, and the game's original publishers, FASA, have been accused of plagiarizing Gibson's work without even a statement of his influence, while Gibson has stated his dislike of the inclusion of fantasy elements. Reprinted in McCafferey, Storming the Reality Studio. Plenty of "social justice warriors" write badly, and writers like Robert Heinlein are superb (Heinlein was a genius at straight-faced put-ons—you could never tell if he meant what he said or was just pursuing a thought experiment to its logical end).

This is a particularly strong theme in feminist science fiction, and societies based on a version of Christian or Islamic fundamentalism are found in Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale (1986), Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Shattered Chain (1983), Sylvia Engdahl's This Star Shall Abide (1972) and Sheri Tepper's Grass (1990), The Fresco (2000), and The Visitor (2002) ref.: http://desidesign.co.uk/?library/mage-tech-inner-ghost. The stories that build into In the Night Garden and its companion volume, In the Cities of Coin and Spice, have each literary painting change to tell a new tale connected both to the previous one and to the later tales to come, all interconnected like strange Russian stacking dolls but each one unique within the other and augmenting each other http://voluntareuropean.ro/?library/junana-game-state. I’ve almost finished compiling a collection of my short stories (in different genres), and that will be probably published before the summer.

So cyberpunk is a pretty direct reflection of the social position, not of our whole society, but of a particular group, which is very interesting and important, but which also has its strong limitations: it's certainly not the point of view of the whole world http://voluntareuropean.ro/?library/perfect-children. The Lord of the Rings is a classic example of fantasy literature (and now movies). Maybe hobbits and dragons could some day be genetically engineered…but Gandalf’s magic isn’t based on, well, science. And, generally, if it’s magic, that means it’s not sci-fi. Some works, like the comic book Saga, combine elements of both. The same is true of The Avengers, which features a high-tech robotic combat suit and a Norse god http://voluntareuropean.ro/?library/wild-thing-the-leeth-dossier.

It received a boost of respectability after authors such as Horacio Quiroga and Jorge Luis Borges used its elements in their writings. This, in turn, led to the permanent emergence of science fiction in the 1960s and mid-1970s, notably in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and Cuba , e.g. http://support.webicode.com/lib/mage-tech-inner-ghost-volume-2. Over recent decades, science fiction has become popular in the nonliterary media, including film, television, and electronic games.

Cybernetics, the primary tool of the cybernaut, is the formalized science exploring the nature of control and communication within biological, social and artificial systems.

I considered myself pretty well-read in the genre before I came here and saw all of the great suggestions from LT members. It makes me wish I could quit my job and read all the time, especially since I don't only read science fiction. I read more sf than anything else, but there are lots of other things I want to read as well. There are about a thousand and one book out there that are on my reading list (sf and others) and I just know that if I went to a library and just wandered the shelves, I could find about a thousand more! 50-100 books a year is clearly not enough to read everything I want to read... :-( I'm posting the core reading syllabus from my literary criticism - cyberpunk class, because I think it will be helpful to see a list of the 'definitive' writings for the genre (from the point of view of the critic.) I know some of these books have already been mentioned, but I think the specifications and sub-categories help give placement in the genre http://voluntareuropean.ro/?library/a-chronetic-memory-the-chronography-records-book-1.

Despite both being hackers, Case is much closer to the "nerdy lowlife" we might expect in such a novel, while Hiro sets the standard for future protagonists like Neo in the Matrix: swordfighter, sunglasses, always cool and collected.

Campbell's tenure at Astounding is considered to be the beginning of the Golden Age of science fiction, characterized by hard SF stories celebrating scientific achievement and progress. [27] This lasted until post-war technological advances, new magazines such as Galaxy, edited by H. Gold, and a new generation of writers began writing stories with less emphasis on the hard sciences and more on the social sciences http://voluntareuropean.ro/?library/hardwired-episode-five.

And Gibson famously was never a fan of computers; he wrote the book on a 1927 model portable typewriter. Consider the opening line, once cited as an exemplar of his deft use of language: “The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel” (3).

Nanopunk refers to an emerging subgenre of speculative science fiction still very much in its infancy in comparison to other genres like that of cyberpunk. [7] The genre is similar to biopunk, but describes a world in which the use of biotechnology is limited or prohibited, and only nanites and nanotechnology is in wide use (while in biopunk bio- and nanotechnologies often coexist) , e.g. http://becurfin.nl/?freebooks/over-the-adrenaline-edge-volume-94-short-stories.
