Cyberpunk and Post Cyberpunk

     For my next project, I will read Neuromancer, by William Gibson, an anthology of post cyberpunk stories, some Neal Stephenson, and look at the development from cyberpunk, post cyberpunk, and maybe even post post cyberpunk.  It turns out that many of the issues raised in the couple of books I've reviewed, especially the Hofstadter, bear directly on the worlds created by these various books.

In the meantime check out this website from Washington State University Profesor Paul Brians:

Note that I will not be answering any of his study questions, at least not intentionally; I will leave that to his students or interested readers.
