Cyber World: Tales of Humanity’s Tomorrow
Ed. by Jason Heller and Joshua Viola
At one point in time, some twenty or thirty years ago, “cyberpunk” seemed the future of SF. Today it’s a term that isn’t used as much, but only because, as editor Joshua Viola puts it in his intro to this great new anthology, “we live in a cyberpunk world.”
Our interaction and codependent relationship with intelligent technology, the directed evolution of humanity by drugs or other forms of augmentation, an inescapable global digital culture: these have all become part of our everyday reality.
The lively and imaginative stories collected here take us even further into this cyber world, envisioning a diverse future that seems more likely, or more familiar, every day.
