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 Lord Foulgrin's Letters. Cultures circulate stories important to their maintenance and change; humans circulate stories out of a basic need Desecration (Left Behind, Volume 9). That branch of literature which is concerned with the impact of scientific advance upon human beings. The touchstone for scientific fiction, then, is that it describes an imaginary invention or discovery in the natural sciences.
