10/20. I feel pretty good about that. I also appreciate that you didn't just stick with 90s, even though I feel that was cyberpunk's golden age.

Ah, that is so. It threw me that your search function only looks within the reviews.

The Continuous Katherine Mortenhoe?

The Shockwave Rider?

3/20.

How about "True Names?"

How is "God's War" cyberpunk? There's all the biotech but I don't remember much internet stuff in the plot at all.

I've read 2 of these, am familiar with the creators of 4 others, and have heard of 2 more on the list.

I used to read a lot more, but still...

3/10, and one of those is the Matrix. The ending of When Gravity Fails was so. effing. dark. I never read another Effinger. Neuromancer (and the rest, with Burning Chrome) is the 3rd. I might have thought to see Norman Spinrad (Bug Jack Barron and Little Heroes, though I had to look them up to remind myself of the titles I had in mind) and and Walter Jon Williams, but perhaps their most cyberpunky works have already appeared on other lists.

That book also put me off Effinger. The reason was, the dark ending felt tacked-on. Like he decided at the end to screw the protagonist, even though doing so required a bunch of the secondary characters to suddenly act irrationally and/or "out of character".

Will you consider swapping Moriarty's Spin State for Joan Vinge's Catspaw? I really, really hated those Bose-Einstein condensate mines. Also, Catspaw's cover is possibly the cyberest and punkiest 80's cyberpunk art ever.

AAAAAAUUUUUUUGGGGHHHH! From the bowels of Christ I beseech thee, please do not do Core Psionics!

Or if you do, could you have a cutoff date no later than July, 11, 1971? I know, why cavil at that stuff when ftl is still a venerable trope. But still.

Core Psionics, i.e. Universe Against Her, half of Norton's output, and um, that old series about the galactic patrolmen...uh...oh well, if I can't remember the name, it can't be that important.

10/20, which surprised me, since I never considered cyberpunk one of the genres I read a lot of.

I've hardly read any of these, and one of them is the usual suspect. Putting Neuromancer halfway down the list is some nice lowkey shade. Also, thanks for not putting any Sterling on there.

Er, the list is organized alphabetically by author's family name. So I don't think you can read anything into Neuromancer's placement.

No Brunner?

Both Shockwave Rider and The Sheep Look Up are more than a bit relevant at the moment.

Good list! I've read a solid chunk of them but am now making note for future reading. Thanks!
