Rewired: The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology
by James Patrick Kelly and John Kessel, eds.
Available Format(s): Trade Paperback and eBooks
Observe: A government ninja routed by a bicycle repairman, the inventor of digitized paper hijacked by his college crush, a dead boy trapped in a warped storybook paradise, and the queen of England attacked with the deadliest technology: a working modem.
Meet: Manfred Macx, renegade meme-broker, Red Sonja, virtual reality sex-goddess, and Felix, humble sys-admin and post-apocalyptic hero. And the Infernokrusher revolution.
Read: Sixteen radical tales, a canon-establishing introduction, and a hotly-contested online debate.
From the grittiness of Mirrorshades to the Singularity and beyond, it’s time to reboot the server. Editors James Patrick Kelly and John Kessel (Feeling Very Strange: The Slipstream Anthology) have united cyberpunk visionaries William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, and Pat Cadigan with the new post-cyberpunk vanguard, including Cory Doctorow, Charles Stross, and Paolo Bacigalupi, in the first anthology to capture the crackling excitement of the post-cyberpunks.
