While some of the writers in Mirrorshades turned away from the work or fell silent, others prospered. It seemed at times that she meant “cyberpunk books written by women”, and that she justifies this by illustrating that the books in question all address issues that male cyberpunk writers ignore, or address poorly.

If military action is what your teen boy craves, he might enjoy titles such as "Ender's Game," by Orson Scott Card, or "Starship Troopers," by Robert Heinlein. The matrix of The Matrix has a more 1:1 correspondence with reality. In fact the narrator explicitly compares it to a 3-D chessboard, giving coding, something we know of as purely 2-D, a much more tangible impact in a physical sense. When we discuss whether something is possible for purposes of categorizing a story today, we mean in the framework of our current science, understanding, and technological feasibility, as defined by scientific community consensus.

Mario Acevedo is the author of the bestselling Felix Gomez detective-vampire series from HarperCollins. One of the key roles of the expanding electronic grid is to articulate a new social and geopolitical stratification based on immediacy of access to data. The beginning of the literary movement that we can best recognize as cyberpunk really got going in the 1980’s. They are set in a world that meets virtually every criteria of being science fiction, but it happens to be our world, and it’s barely tweaked by the author to make the technology just fractionally imaginary or fantastic.

It garners its place largely because many other works by Foster are so well-known it seems that this one has been largely ignored except for a minority of people like me who have accorded it cult status.

It is reprehensible to the advocate of sf to use the term sci-fi as it is to the trekker to use the term trekkie ." Subtle nods were included to Chicago, Illinois, the home city of the directors, through place names, city maps, and a subtly placed picture of the Sears Tower. I also have an OSVR HDK 2.0 and Leap motion which I just bought, have to RMA the HDK though. Meanwhile, three writers who might well have been in the sequel to Mirrorshades had there been one—Walter Jon Williams, George Alec Effinger, and Richard Kadrey—published Hardwired (1986), When Gravity Fails (1986), and Metrophage (1988), respectively.
