That year, John Wood Campbell, Jr., became editor of Astounding Stories, and under his direction the magazine began to feature a new type of science fiction.

In his introduction to Mirrorshades, an anthology which helped to map the parameters of the cyberpunk movement, Bruce Sterling argues that cyberpunk reflects a new perspective on technology, not only among science fiction writers, but among consumers. For Sterling cyberpunk imagines an "overlapping of worlds that were formally separate: the realm of high tech and the modern pop underground." This drags you in and has you embroiled in the story from the start. It's one of those multiple tale formats with the characters int he book telling how they ended up on the quest. A complex picture builds - a mixture of sci fi, future tech and mythology. It's the kind of book I would have avoided but once I started it I was sucked into the story and devoured the trilogy Nevada Falls Black.

My novel won—and the presentation of the glittering Lucite trophy was followed by a discomforting speech from an eminent member of SFWA. Perhaps you’ve heard such disgruntled talks: They begin, as did this one, “What I have to say tonight, many of you are not going to like. . .” and went on to castigate the organization for letting itself be taken in by (the phrase was, or was something very like) “pretentious literary nonsense,” unto granting it awards, and abandoning the old values of good, solid, craftsmanlike story-telling Nephilites. As the title suggests, the story returns to some of the core icons of the Gernsback tradition of technological utopianism CYBORG MASTERS: "The War of Tears". Sci-fi tales have a prophetic nature (they often attempt to figure out or depict the future) and are often set in a speculative future time. They may provide a grim outlook, portraying a dystopic view of the world that appears grim, decayed and un-nerving (i.e., Metropolis (1927) with its underground slave population and view of the effects of industrialization, the portrayal of 'Big Brother' society in 1984 (1956 and 1984), nuclear annihilation in a post-apocalyptic world in On the Beach (1959), Douglas Trumbull's vision of eco-disaster in Silent Running (1972), Michael Crichton's Westworld (1973) with androids malfunctioning, Soylent Green (1973) with its famous quote: "Soylent Green IS PEOPLE!", 'perfect' suburbanite wives in The Stepford Wives (1975), and the popular gladiatorial sport of the year 2018 in Rollerball (1975)) The Evidence of Things Not Seen.

But although I believe that literature is a huge and indispensable aspect of our humanity—that books are, as Susan Sontag put it, nothing less than “a way of being fully human”—I felt that there was something oddly diminishing, and perhaps even absurd, in the notion of bringing literature to account in this way Apocalypse Burning: The Earth's Last Days: The Battle Lines Are Drawn (Left Behind Military). It transforms reality speculatively, exploring alternate possibilities and thus commenting on human limitations and aspirations. Such fiction explores more freely, and fully, the world in which we live than does realistic fiction, because it creates alternatives we can compare with our world. Science fiction offers visions of worlds we might wish for, or fear; in doing so, it offers unique and invaluable insights into the nature of the world we have Birth of an Age: Book Two of the Christ Clone Trilogy.
