These writers, in fact, represent in their fiction what Gibson observes in passing but does not really articulate in his texts: that the "potential for technology of oppression" is (not "seems") very strong.17 Elgin, Atwood, and Fairbairns all provide active critiques of political trends which surfaced in the early ’80s; and thus they differ quite drastically from Gibson, who hopes that the future will "be as much like the present as possible" ("King" 86). Summer Wars is a shining example of this, what with the fact that a virtual world is the thing that connects everything together.

He won the Campbell Award in 2009 for Little Brother, and has visited KU other times to give talks. The Shockwave Rider (John Brunner, 1975) The original cyberpunk novel, predating Gibson’ Neuromancer by nine years (and even the word “ cyberpunk ” by five.) Admittedly, it doesn’t feature a neon-lit virtual reality cyberspace, but it does have a hacker who unleashes a little doozey on the global computer network—a self replicating program that Brunner dubbed a “worm.” In 1982 researchers at Xerox PARC noticed the real work they were on distributed computation doing bore a striking resemblance to Brunner’s fictional creation, and by 1988 the first worm to be released into the wild was happily munching through thousands of computers on the early Internet.

Maddox, Tom (1986), “Snake-Eyes” in Omni, April 1986. Almost all of its futuristic technology is Bio Punk though. Also when I look back at it, there was a whole number of author writing in that genre about dystopian futures, AI, convergent tech, before the term became popular. – scope_creep Jan 17 '11 at 20:11 We simply wrote what we wanted to write, though we did notice that we were living in a period of great creative stirrings.
