"Cowboys And Vampires: Eastern European Encounters In American Fiction." Actually, the first and best cyberpunk movie was Blade Runner (1982). Being proven right about a piece of technology or a trend distracts from the main aim of the work: to show us how we live now. Whereas in Dreiser or Chandler such figures would include steel, oil, or newspaper magnates, in Blade Runner they comprise corrupt policemen, genetic engineers, and robotics http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Studies in American Naturalism University of Nebraska Press http://www.deepdyve.com/lp/university-of-nebraska-press/cyberpunk-as-naturalist-science-fiction-5QBWaasiNQ Studies in American Naturalism • Summer .

Author Nalo Hopkinson, professor of creative writing, followed in 2010, and Vint, a science fiction and technoculture studies scholar, joined the Department of English in 2012.
