They specialize in cybernetics, robotics and advanced artificial intelligence. They tend to just mush science fiction and fantasy all together, or use a percentage-based judgment — if it has magically talking pigs flying spaceships and having laser battles, it is 80 percent scifi, 20 percent fantasy (and 100 percent Muppet awesome) and therefore would be filed as science fiction. Well, I guess I'm in need of some schoolin' when it come to the term itself. :-) I've not come across the term Singularity (at least applied to fiction) although I can see now what you mean and how you apply it.

The name is derived from cybernetics and punk and was originally coined by Bruce Bethke as the title of his short story "Cyberpunk" published in 1983, though the style was popularized well before its publication by editor Gardner Dozois. For many years an uneasy balance was achieved, mostly by mutual adherence to the rules that govern what is permitted from both sides. Note that the OAV version is longer than the feature film edition (180 minutes vs. 90 minutes) and has a more involved story.

Frontiers are always fraught with danger, romance, utopian flights of fancy, and no small amount of madness. Dicks Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, utspelar sig i en dystopisk framtid där syntetiska livsformer har färre rättigheter än vanliga människor. When you know people care it adds value and motivation to what you do. Ronin was perhaps the first hard Cyber Punk mainstream comic. Ich weiß nicht, was der gemeinsame Nenner zwischen Greg Bear, Lucius Shepherd, Norman Spinrad, William Gibson und Bruce Sterling sein könnte… Ich hätte große Bedenken, Cyberpunk als eine literarische Bewegung oder literarische Schule zu bewerten.

The Matrix was primarily a blockbuster action film, but did explore thought-provoking themes of simulated reality.

Hacker dropped one of Delany’s novels into a slush pile under a pen name. They either like or don't like science fiction and fantasy.

While these are among the few stories that mention Jesus specifically, a figure whose advent and saving of a culture are messianic in nature is common and can be found in J. Preach your fool head off, but who trusts gurus, anyway? Should the literate author be familiar with Dick and Ellison? Many people have seen Dick as a unique figure in science fiction. Short stories were selected instead of novels or movies because: 1. If we date SF back to Jules Verne (rather than Mary Shelley, who, while brilliant and a real forerunner, left no real school of imitators), then SF originated in 1851, with Verne's "A Voyage in a Balloon."

Greg Bear, whose work shared DNA with cyberpunk but was definitely of a different species, expanded his award-winning story “Blood Music” into the 1985 novel of the same name. The astronomer Robert Richardson said, "There can be no doubt that Jules Verne's Trip to the Moon with all its faults has exerted a powerful effect on human thought in preparing our minds for this greatest of all adventures." These games allow artists to not only work out new story lines for their cyberpunk universes but also to give their audiences a chance to design and designate groups of cyberpunk warriors.

This possibility of catching a great number of wave-lengths appealed to me very much, and I think that was the result of the historical epoch I lived through. His adventurous tales were later popular fodder for some of the earliest science-fiction films. Victoria was drowned while bathing at the seaside. In cyberpunk stories' settings, there is usually a 'system' which dominates the lives of most 'ordinary' people, be it an oppressive government, a group of large, paternalistic corporations, or a fundamentalist religion.

I have to put in a vote for Vacuum Flowers by Michael Swanwick. There's a good argument technology alienating people versus people alienating people has never been a feature of cyberpunk. Do the characters talk like they come from a Shakespeare play or do they talk like teens in an 80s movie? Seven main themes are addressed: the impact of virtual technologies on identity, space and community; the interplay of technological and mythological motifs; reconfigurations of the body initiated by technoscience; issues of gender and sexuality; the siginificance of the sprawling megacity; cyberpunk's Gothic traits of monstrosity, transgresison and social unrest; and the editing of history and memory. …mehr This text explores the work of a wide range of writers, setting their work in the context of science fiction, other literary genres, genre cinema and contemporary work on the culture of technology.
