    PDF Victoria Blake ¶ Cyberpunk eBook È ¶ cyberpunk book, Cyberpunk EpubThe world does not need another cyberpunk anthology The editor of this one Victoria Blake even makes that point in her Introduction while name checking Bruce Sterling's definitive anthology Mirrorshades However despite its title and some of its contents Cyberpunk isn't actually a cyberpunk anthology anyway What Blake has done here is use the concept of cyberpunk—and a few canonical examples—in order to bring together sf stories she likes And that turns out to be a rather good thingBlake leads off with a couple stories that are cyberpunk by anyone's definition—William Gibson's Johnny Mnemonic and Bruce Sterling's Mozart in Mirrorshades but then veers into other territory The third tale Jonathan Lethem's Interview with the Crab seems to me to be punk enough but with no detectable cyber And the story that ends the anthology Cory Doctorow's When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth if you can call it an ending—as Bruce Sterling says in User Centric p154 There are no h

    PDF Victoria Blake ¶ Cyberpunk eBook È ¶ cyberpunk book, Cyberpunk EpubAs is the case with most anthologies Cyberpunk Stories of Hardware Software Wetware Evolution and Revolution has something for everyone The cyberpunk genre has been often overlooked despite the amazing narrative capabilities of the genre's authors This is a great collection with a largely varied collection of stories from some of the best writers of cyberpunk I found all of the stories to be well written and extremely detailed It's slightly disconcerting how close

    PDF Victoria Blake ¶ Cyberpunk eBook È ¶ cyberpunk book, Cyberpunk EpubThis was a good selection of short stories if you like cyberpunk and its conventions One thing that kept it from being very good was its focus on the regular guy and what his everyday life might be like in a cyberpunk setting Those got tiring after a while They would have been refreshing if they'd been sprinkled among of the traditional giant corporations are k

    PDF Victoria Blake ¶ Cyberpunk eBook È ¶ cyberpunk book, Cyberpunk Epubnothing like a cyberpunk anthology I'd compile I like a broad definition of cyberpunk and am a bigger fan of the looser defined post cyberpunk but much of this caused me to shake my head wonder why it's here if it has no

    PDF Victoria Blake ¶ Cyberpunk eBook È ¶ cyberpunk book, Cyberpunk EpubNice collection of short stories good diversity of writing styles subject matter etcMy first? edition has a major fault in typesetting though in Johnny Mnemonic There's some ASCII art which is not rendered at all properly Luckily I'd read that one before and found it online to check You can kinda figure it out from context but it's not ideal would recommend using another source if it's your first time for that story There were a few formatting uirks elsewhere in the book that I'

    PDF Victoria Blake ¶ Cyberpunk eBook È ¶ cyberpunk book, Cyberpunk EpubAs editor Victoria Blake admits early on 'cyberpunk' is a loose grouping for the stories within than something firmly genre focused like the famous anthology 'Mirrorshades' but while that does lead to oddities l akin to standard sci fi if you approach this along the 'punk' than 'cyber' side of the mindset there are plenty of great stories withinBruce Sterling and William Gibson sharing a volume with Cory Doctorow and Jonathan Lethem means the pacing remains fast and the styles varied enough to keep your interest throughout No one story outstays its welcome plenty do an excellent job of dropping an entire novel's worth of concepts onto you before disa

    PDF Victoria Blake ¶ Cyberpunk eBook È ¶ cyberpunk book, Cyberpunk EpubI bought this book accidentally on with one click when I just wanted to read a sample I decided to go for it instead of going through the hassle of getting a refundThis is a short story collection from different authors so both the topics and the writing style differs significantly between the stories I find it therefore hard to give this book an overall rating or review In my opinion most of the stories make for interesting thought experiments which I absolutely like in this genre Some of the stories were a bit light on high tech which kind of surprised me others were right on the mark If you are into sci fi shorts you will probably enjoy several of the contributions in this bundle

    PDF Victoria Blake ¶ Cyberpunk eBook È ¶ cyberpunk book, Cyberpunk EpubI'll keep this short since most of the other reviews on here for this book cover the same territory This is not a good collection of Cyberpunk stories I'm no expert but I'd say that maybe three of these fall into what you would classically define as that genre So if you are looking for Matrix style stories hacking gunfights etc you should probably look elsewhere However despite not being a good Cyberpunk anthology it IS a great fiction and sci fi anthology Almost every story in here is uality even if the threads that link them together are a bit thin The subheader stories of hardware software wetware revolu
