Bruce Sterling’s response, in Interzone, to Lewis Shiner’s "Confessions of an Ex-cyberpunk Writer" (The New York Times, Jan. 7, 1991), makes clear what William Gibson has been saying for years: that "cyberpunk" is a label with which many of the writers who have been dubbed part of the "movement" are uncomfortable. Definition of cyberpunk in English: [mass noun] A genre of science fiction set in a lawless subculture of an oppressive society dominated by computer technology. ‘In defense of our approach, I would say only that ours can include the modern primitives, and also include Zen, Sufism, The Troubadours, western anarchism, cyberpunk, punk rock, cubism, Voltaire, ad infinitum.’ ‘The genres, however, include a variety of subgenres, such as cyberpunk, punk, funk, dramatised Western style, goth, lolita, and warmono.’ ‘Then, in the mid-80s, just as cyberpunk came along, I got a job as a computer programmer and walked away from the sects and finished my thesis, and within a short time was organising an SF club at work and writing The Star Fraction.’ ‘So, this oversight is unfortunate - to compensate, readers should check out Leonard's excellent essay on cyberpunk in When the Kissing Had to Stop.’ ‘The emphasis is on rebuilding society, rather than cyberpunk's appetite for destruction.’ ‘You can become a cyborg, get involved in Cyber Rights, cyberdemocracy, cyberpunk, cyberdrama, even cyberpsychology.’ ‘Sentimental and religious motifs, which are paradoxically powerful in Russian cyberpunk, sometimes lend this work characteristics of autoparody.’ ‘Its design incorporates ideas from cyberpunk and film noir; its plot embraces our fears about genetic manipulation and man/machine conflict.’ ‘This is where Spinoza converges with cyberpunk, and hence with Deleuze-Guattari, cyberpunk's main theoretical program.’ ‘What is the difference between playing pinball games and video games, snowboarding and surfing, or reading cyberpunk vs. traditional science fiction?’ ‘With No Maps, Neale more or less becomes cyberpunk's Errol Morris, a documentary filmmaker who likes his subjects to do the talking while he, armed with a low budget and high aspirations, attempts to visually literalize their speech.’ ‘It's this sinister sparkle that has drawn me to the genre of cyberpunk in fiction, film, and even to an extent in music, for many years.’ ‘It reminded us that, for all the California-Wired-Hollywood bluster, cyberpunk was essentially a British invention, synthesized first through fictions and sonics then theory.’ ‘If you're a fan of experimental film, a fan of Lynch or Cronenberg, a fan of cyberpunk, then Tetsuo is pretty much required viewing and this, simply, is the version to view.’ What area does botany relate to?
