Background[ edit ] Lawrence Person has attempted to define the content and ethos of the cyberpunk literary movement stating: Classic cyberpunk characters were marginalized, alienated loners who lived on the edge of society in generally dystopic futures where daily life was impacted by rapid technological change, an ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information, and invasive modification of the human body.
Reacting to conventional storytelling, New Wave authors attempted to present a world where society coped with a constant upheaval of new technology and culture, generally with dystopian outcomes.
Writers like Roger ZelaznyJ. BallardPhilip Jose Farmerand Harlan Ellison often examined the impact of drug culture, technology, and the sexual revolution with an avant-garde style influenced by the Beat Generation especially William S.
Burroughs ' own SFDadaismand their own ideas. Instead, Ballard wanted to write a new myth for the modern reader, a style with "more psycho-literary ideas, more meta-biological and meta-chemical concepts, private time systems, synthetic psychologies and space-times, more of the sombre half-worlds one glimpses in the paintings of schizophrenics.
One, Bruce Sterlinglater said: We used to have bitter struggles over who was more Ballardian than whom. Similarly influential, and generally cited as proto-cyberpunk, is the Philip K. Presenting precisely the general feeling of dystopian post-economic-apocalyptic future as Gibson and Sterling later deliver, it examines ethical and moral problems with cybernetic, artificial intelligence in a way more "realist" than the Isaac Asimov Robot series that laid its philosophical foundation.
This novel was made into the seminal movie Blade Runnerreleased in This was one year after another story, " Johnny Mnemonic " helped move proto-cyberpunk concepts into the mainstream. This story, which also became a film years later, involves another dystopian future, where human couriers deliver computer data, stored cybernetically in their own minds.
Bethke says he made two lists of words, one for technology, one for troublemakers, and experimented with combining them variously into compound words, consciously attempting to coin a term that encompassed both punk attitudes and high technology. He described the idea thus: Some, perhaps ironically including Bethke himself, argued at the time that the writers whose style Gibson's books epitomized should be called "Neuromantics", a pun on the name of the novel plus " New Romantics ", a term used for a New Wave pop music movement that had just occurred in Britain, but this term did not catch on.
Bethke later paraphrased Michael Swanwick 's argument for the term: Sterling was another writer who played a central role, often consciously, in the cyberpunk genre, variously seen as keeping it on track, or distorting its natural path into a stagnant formula.
The Cyberpunk Anthologyan attempt to establish what cyberpunk was, from Sterling's perspective. Bookending the Cyberpunk era, Bethke himself published a novel in called Headcrashlike Snow Crash a satirical attack on the genre's excesses.
Fittingly, it won an honor named after cyberpunk's spiritual founder, the Philip K. It satirized the genre in this way: They're total wankers and losers who indulge in Messianic fantasies about someday getting even with the world through almost-magical computer skills, but whose actual use of the Net amounts to dialing up the scatophilia forum and downloading a few disgusting pictures.
Elements of both the setting and storytelling have become normal in science fiction in general, and a slew of sub-genres now have -punk tacked onto their names, most obviously Steampunkbut also a host of other Cyberpunk derivatives.
