Often considered to have been the creation of William Gibson in his seminal novel "Neuromancer," the subgenre of cyberpunk can be traced back into the history of science fiction from the 1950s to the late 1970s, and emerged in reaction to the world of the 1980s. Cyberpunk is a mix of hard science fiction, noir plotting, punk attitude, and the cutting edge of culture. This book looks in detail at the movers and shakers in the cyberpunk movement, from the early days of William Gibson and Bruce Sterling through feminist and British versions of cyberpunk to the post-cyberpunk or cyberpunk-flavored fictions of Neal Stephenson, Greg Egan, Jeff Noon, and Jack Womack. It also examines important cyberpunk films including "Blade Runner" and "The Matrix,"
