   About this theme  
 
  The essence of Cyberpunk fiction had been evolving for years, but most people mark the birth of this literary genre with William Gibson's stunning Neuromancer.

Through the later half of the eighties and early nineties, Cyberpunk fiction was a very hot topic. Nowadays, people like to think of it as a passing fad, but that is not true. Just look through this theme list and see what young new writers are doing with the many concepts that were once labeled cyberpunk fiction.

The core feeling of cyberpunk dealt with people living on the extreme edge of society, using the power of computers and technology to carve out a niche for themselves. The early novels felt like watching a Raymond Chandler film noir by a screenwriter who had gene spliced with the DNA from Philip K. Dick. The reason why the genre became so popular is because cyberpunk was full of life, edgy and the early adopters hawked it like Timothy Leary promoting the virtues of LSD. So a generation of kids who admired the rebelliousness of hippies took cyberpunk to heart.

By Jim Harris, 2000
