summary The Ultimate Cyberpunk summary ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Pat Cadigan Pat Cadigan ✓ 6 summary In The Ultimate Cyberpunk editor Pat Cadigan takes readers through the evolution of this influential science fiction genre from the groundbreaking forefathers of the field such as Alfred Bester and Philip K Dick to the founding members of the cybe. A very good collection if you are curious about cyberpunk and you want to see how different authors choose to explore the themes of the genre Once again we can see the predictive power of cyberpunk while reading the short stories here Some approach topics that we are well too familiar with today and it makes for an interesting read The stories that I found most prophetic and interesting were Green Days in Brunei and The Girl Who was Plugged in I would not say they breached some new ground with their ideas but they felt real and involving in a way that many sci fi works fail to achieve When talking about a collection we have to mention the choice of stories and the way they were ordered I think that Editor Pat Cardigan did herself a disservice by placing her story so far in the back I think the story was a weak link and i would ve been better to read it earlier before we get a good grasp of what sort of stories we will read in the next pagesThe rest of the stories are very well grounded they follow each other nicely rarely go into abstractions and confusing narration and feel very gritty and real

summary The Ultimate Cyberpunk summary ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Pat Cadigan Pat Cadigan ✓ 6 summary Rpunk movement such as William Gibson and Bruce Sterling and forward through such innovators as Lewis Shiner and Rudy Rucker In this special collection Cadigan presents the cyberpunk world in which reality and virtual reality intersect The growing. This is a good anthology of an SF subgenre whose death knell has been tolled many times before but never got around to kicking it And that s a very good thing There is much to like in this collection that Cadigan has cobbled together It gathers the pivotal authors of the genre and shows off just how diverse the stories can be No not every cyberpunk narrative takes place in a gritty urban setting with characters in black pvc and technology that looks like it fell off a stealth bomber Here are a few of the highlightsAlfred Bester Fondly Farenheit an android and a dialogue between ego and superego You make the call A prototype for the genre that would be cyberpunkPhilip K Dick We Can Remember It For You Wholesale are memories as good as the real thing This is a great entry by the legendary man of ideas that has none of the action movie tropes of its film version Total Recall Sorry Bernard no Michael IronsideRudy Rucker 57th Franz Kafka a new take on The Metamorphosis Disturbing and inscrutable but did you expect anything else from RuckerWilliam Gibson Burning Chrome fine work by the Master a story of a cyberspace double cross Gibson could probably make a tuna salad recipe sound like science fictionGreg Bear Blood Music could be one of the realistic of the collection The time for this kind of nano enhancement is upon usLewis Shriner Till Human Voices Wake Us for me this entry strays rather far afield from cyberpunk and enters the realm of biotech But that s okay it adds to the diversity of the collectionJohn Shirley Freezone not much of a plot here just Shirley taking us on a punky meandering through a dystopic future And I loved itWilliam Gibson and Michael Swanwick Dogfight twistyBruce Sterling Green Days in Brunei probably my favorite and the most satisfying of the pieces Strong and endearing characters A world not too far removed from our own A nice tale for illustrating the rise of the developing world If I have any overall criticism of the stories it has to do with style Except for Gibson and Sterling none of these writers compose with any thought to description They just lay everything out there violating that cardinal rule of literary writing show don t tell As I ve grown sick of that phrase I m actually kind of ok with the so called transgression But then I read the work of Gibson and his descriptions and phrasing absolutely blow me away making the other stories look like amateur hour Character development is another issue Except for Bruce Sterling the authors spend maybe a page on it With protagonists so thin it s difficult to cultivate much of an attachment to them so you better hope the scientific principle that is being explored keeps you hanging onOh and why Neal Stephenson wasn t included is beyond me Maybe he s never written in the short form before I don t knowAll in all Ultimate Cyberpunk makes for fine reading Plus you get an 11 page insert of a lost comic book version of William Gibson s classic Neuromancer I ve heard there is a film adaptation on the horizon Let s hope not The book is amazing but I just don t think it translates well to other media if this comic is any indication

summary The Ultimate Cyberpunk summary ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Pat Cadigan Pat Cadigan ✓ 6 summary 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. A great collection Perhaps not considered as classic as Bruce Sterling s Mirrorshades collection but I liked it better in that I actually read every story Can t recall where I got stuck in the other book but one author just wasn t connecting with my brain when I read it But this volume was great edited by another great cyberpunk author I d never had the opportunity to read We Can Remember It for You Wholesale before which had been recommended to me for over 20 years since before the film version of it was released I just finished reading Burning Chrome the collection not just the eponymous story And The Sirens of Titan Now I m reading some weird 80s Ace Books paperback called Doctor Bones found at the friends of the library bookstore by my beloved So now I m starting to feel a bit sci fi d out But this book was a fantastic It contains stories by people about whom I d read but who s work I d not gotten to or couldn t find The opener Fondly Fahrenheit by Alfred Bester about a man with and his android on the lam in the universe at large Published in 1954 I d barely heard of Bester before and am looking forward to digging up some of his other work This author was one of at least three in the collection born before 1920The Rudy Rucker story very short a bit disturbing fascinatingGreg Bear s Blood MusicI ve avoided his work for uite awhile thinking it might not be for me but this was a great story about nanotechnologyAfter reading the list that editor Pat Cadigan put in the back composed by Bruce Sterling of contents the essential cyberpunk library which included much of his own work I was prepared not to like his story in this volume but Green Days in Brunei was one of my favorites a love story and a story of finding the balance between high tech and low to no techAmong the fascinating authors I d not yet tackled are James Tiptree Jr Alice Sheldon and Cordwainer Smith Paul Myron Anthony Linebarger The latter was a psychological warfare expert and author and a government adviser and professor of international and particularly Far East studies He was born in 1913 Mrs Sheldon also born before 1920 wrote under a pseudonym not just because a woman author would be taken less seriously but because her career was also in experimentalmilitary psychology and its application in government intelligenceCheck it out It s a pretty fun read
