But their unique designs aren’t restricted to the silver screen. And it has been a stylistic influence, a kind of sensibility, which spread rapidly to film, television, comics, music, fashion, and computer games. The librarian turned out to be an alien that the spacemen identified as the Creator (talk about wish-fulfillment for librarians) who made replicas of them for his library and then let them go. Soon, the hippie rapture would happen and it would all be okay. If Neuromancer looks at the future through a high-powered telescope, Pattern Recognition has its face pressed right up to the glass.

Some editors and critics divide the field by “speculations that may be”, labeling stories as “cautionary”, “inspirational” or “satirical”. Some talk about “otherness”, as does Christopher Evans in “Writing Science Fiction” when he divides science fiction into the four categories of “other times” (past, future), “other worlds” (alien world, alternate histories), “other beings” (altered humans such as mutants, cyborgs, supermen and immortals; artificial humans such as robots, androids, computers; aliens such as humanoids, nonhumanoids and monsters) and “other states of mind” (telepathy, precognition, telekinesis and teleportation; reaching/creating other realities through the mind; and drugs/agents that create new states of mind) , cited: http://dallasaudiorentals.com/freebooks/evocronik-1-0.

If things go on the way they’re going, and technology keeps emerging, we’ll eventually have a near-total sorting of humanity’s attic. In my lifetime I’ve been able to watch completely different narratives of history emerge. The history now of what World War II was about and how it actually took place is radically different from the history I was taught in elementary school download.

The Avengers/The New Avengers are similar in style, albeit more comically oriented. This subgenre has continued in America, with David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, and, of course, The X-Files (the jewel in the crown of the Fox network) http://support.webicode.com/lib/checkpoints-down-the-rabbit-hole. Cthulhu Tech is very much a post-cyberpunk setting, and despite the nature of the universe, has a government that despite its flaws is trying to save humanity, an economy which is approaching post-scarcity with nanofactories and the D-Engine, and themes of transhumanism (though not of the kind that you necessarily like ) http://dallasaudiorentals.com/freebooks/the-allure.

The invention of the balloon in 1783 by the Montgolfier brothers changed all that. It was clear that a balloon could never carry anyone to the Moon, but that invention was a watershed in perception http://icarservice.com.ua/freebooks/terra-the-elements-series-book-2.

To me, SF has always been somewhat boring where it presents a shiny and incredibly advanced science as the central story element. Adding advanced, detached, superhuman people to this makes it even worse. SF becomes interesting when that science is just a means to an end, and that end is to tell about real human beings and their interacting with each other in their society http://maadi.info/?books/ghostskin. C'est le 30 décembre 1984, dans le Washington Post, qu'un article de Dozois intitulé « SF in the Eighties » qualifie de « cyberpunk » le style de l'œuvre de l'écrivain William Gibson, et plus particulièrement de son roman Neuromancien (1984).
