I’ve been reading a lot of cyberpunk over the last month or so as I prepare for a small project, and today I want to point out a short story collection that’s great fun if you’re looking for something to follow the cyberpunk literature. Rewired: The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology* is, as Wikipedia describes pcp, ” In this view, typical postcyberpunk stories continue the focus on social implications within a post-third industrial-era society, such as a ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information and cybernetic augmentation of the human body, but without the assumption of dystopia . . . “

Maybe, but what I know for sure is that the stories I’ve been reading in Rewired: The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology* have been a lot of fun.

Following the rapid evolution of cyberpunk from Bruce Sterling and William Gibson into the current millennium, this vivid anthology welcomes a new generation of exciting writers to take the genre in new and unexpected directions. Cyberpunk freewheels with punk rock energy, careening between the internet, bioengineering, and international politics, its influence saturating entertainment and the mass media. Drawing on the traditions of the pioneering cyberpunk manifesto, Mirrorshades, each story delves into the gritty world of technological change. Legendary Mirrorshades editor and contributor Bruce Sterling is back, alongside such cutting-edge writers as Cory Doctorow, Jonathan Lethem, Gwyneth Jones, Hal Duncan, Charles Stross, and Pat Cadigan.
