STORMING THE REALITY STUDIO: A Casebook of Cyberpunk & Postmodern Science Fiction.

Edition: Trade paperback, 6th printing..

Durham & London: Duke University Press, 1991. From the back cover: "The term "cyberpunk" entered the literary landscape in 1984 to describe William Gibson's novel "Neuromancer". Cyberpunks are now among the shock troops of postmodernism, this study argues, marshalling the resources of a fragmentary culture to create a startling new form. Artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, multinational machinations, frenetic bursts of prose, collisions of style: although emerging largely from science fiction, these features of cyberpunk writing are integrally related to the aims and innovations of the literary avant-garde. By bringing together original fiction by contemporary writers, critical commentary by some of the major theorists of postmodern art and culture, and work by major practitioners of cyberpunk, the study reveals an ongoing dialogue in contemporary culture." Fiction contributors include Kathy Acker, J. G. Ballard, William S. Burroughs, Pat Cadigan, Samuel R. Delany, Don DeLillo, William Gibson, Harold Jaffe, Richard Kadrey, Marc Laidlaw, Mark Leyner, Joseph McElroy, Misha, Ted Mooney, Thomas Pynchon, Rudy Rucker, Lucius Shepard, Lewis Shiner, John Shirley, Bruce Sterling, and William Vollman, and the non-fiction contributors include Jean Baudrillard, Jacques Derrida, Joan Gordon, Veronica Hollinger, Fredric Jameson, Arthur Kroker and David Cook, Timothy Leary, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Larry McCaffery, Brian McHale, Dave Porush, Bruce Sterling, Darko Suvin, Takayuki Tatsumi Illustrated.
