The Sidewise Award acknowledges the best works in this subgenre; the name is taken from Murray Leinster 's 1934 story Sidewise in Time.

However, aberrations begin to crop up as individuals chafe against the rigid system, and so-called “cyber divers” are dispatched to investigate these incidents. What you say is quite correct: these authors are impatient; they don't leave themselves time. My favourite type of fiction is cyberpunk. The following entry presents criticism on the representation of cyberpunk in world short fiction literature; for discussion of cyberpunk literature in the twentieth century, see TCLC, Volume 106.

Contagious divides: epidemics and race in San Francisco's Chinatown. Common themes in cyberpunk include advances in information technology and especially the Internet, visually abstracted as cyberspace, artificial intelligence, and cybernetics and post-democratic societal control where corporations have more influence than governments. Certainly the five of us exchanged a lot of letters and phone calls. Augments, of course, are a huge part of the Cyberpunk world. A complex and nuanced genre of fiction, dreampunk narratives are layered and can be interpreted on many levels, with superficial narrative elements suitable for all audiences as well as deep and chilling archetypal references that are more intriguing for readers interested in alchemy, psychoanalysis or the occult.

But even though Cheap Truth seemed to be declaring that the party was over, writers of talent and ambition still wanted to celebrate cyberpunk values. Short fiction provides the same diversity in subject matter and authorship as do novels, though in a much more manageable format.

Instead of space ships, aliens, and the galactic federation, there is the Net (or Matrix) and virtual reality. I would rather keep the cyberpunk label as broad as possible, though I respect those people who prefer a more targeted definition. Personally, I tend to classify stories a little more by feel than content. In cyberpunk, the real, the virtual, the imaginal, the artificial, the human and the machine (cyborg) are all seeking re-invention, re-definition.

Verne’s famous scientific novels, written from 1863 to 1905, were published under the banner of Voyages extraordinaires (Extraordinary Voyages). Still, the 1895 book deserves credit for popularizing the idea that time travel might be done using scientific and technological methods, rather than the magical means used in earlier time travel stories. Note: A special thank you to Alicia Amaro, who helped with the translation.

Sarah Lefanu's In The Chinks of the World Machine: Feminism and Science Fiction (1988), which followed Barr's Alien to Femininity: Speculative Fiction and Feminist Theory (1987), asserts that the plasticity of science fiction and its openness to other literary genres allow an apparent contradiction … it makes possible, and encourages (despite its colonization by male writers), the inscription of women as subjects free from the constraints of mundane fiction; and it also offers the possibilities of interrogating that very inscription, questioning the basis of gendered subjectivity.

Despite both being hackers, Case is much closer to the "nerdy lowlife" we might expect in such a novel, while Hiro sets the standard for future protagonists like Neo in the Matrix: swordfighter, sunglasses, always cool and collected. Critical assessment of cyberpunk ranges from those who approach it with scorn to those who view it as a legitimate literary exploration of life in the post-humanist age. For the New York City College of Technology, CUNY’s 13th Annual Research Poster Session, I created the poster embedded above to illustrate my current research on pre-cyberpunk science fiction (SF) about computing and personal computing.
