Foundation: The Review of Science Fiction 46 (Autumn 1989): 40-51. Earth and Trisolaris must face a new threat of an altogether different magnitude: the stunning conclusion of the Three-Body Problem trilogy. more... But across the whole planet only a few dozen cities actually manage to pull off this feat and continue as places where people can live. It really isn't cyberpunk, but post-cyberpunk. Similarly, the critic Paul Kincaid has framed the problem as one of "exhaustion"--a loss of faith in the idea that the future is knowable, and consequent retreat to formal explorations, the old "castles and space navies" tropes, and the comforting simplicity of nostalgia (including for cyberpunk).

Much of the genre's atmosphere echoes film noir, and written works in the genre often use techniques from detective fiction. This setting was originally a medieval religious dystopia which underwent a sudden Tech Surge. That's why some of the most provocative science fiction starts with men and women very similar to us -- what these people do when faced with unusual crises speaks directly to who we are in our everyday lives. "Modern science fiction," wrote one of its masters, Isaac Asimov, in 1952, "is the only form of literature that consistently considers the nature of the changes that face us, the possible consequences, and the possible solutions. ... [It is] that branch of literature which is concerned with the impact of scientific advance upon human beings."

CYBERPUNK, STEAMPUNK AND WIZARDRY seeks to correct that, offering an overview of the genre that emphasizes exactly these years, with an eye to the big trends and what they meant, both for science fiction, and today's culture as a whole. Commonly identified as the prototype of cyberpunk, Neuromancer was featured on Time magazine’s list of one hundred best English-language novels since 1923. Regardless of the timeline, Cyberpunk often depicts a future that is potentially just around the corner, yet paradoxically already here, using contemporary paranoia and anxiety over technology and power to challenge notions of human good, with settings ranging from rain soaked city streets to decadent corporate palatial estates and the virtual landscapes of the web.
