I remember reading cyberpunk in my youth - stories of tomorrows where technology is an integral part of life, but that life is far from utopian. Strange technologies, dystopian societies and alienated individuals were all a part of visions that stirred the imagination. Cyberpunk didn't really disappear. Instead it transformed. The future is now. Technology is omnipresent, and it is impossible to imagine life without the connectivity of cell phones, tablets, and wifi.
Cyber World provides a tantalizing glimpse of the worlds that could be through a variety of stories from the world's most talented authors. From gene and body modifications to artificial brains sold through rakuten and Amazon, worlds of data to a country of no people, this anthology hosts a tremendous array of post-cyberpunk works. The tomorrows of yesterday have led to today.
I received a copy of Cyber World Tales of Humanity's Tomorrow from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
A Cyberpunk Anthology
Cybernetics. Neuroscience. Nanotechnology. Genetic engineering. Hacktivism. Transhumanism. The world of tomorrow is already here, and the technological changes we all face have inspired a new wave of stories to address our fears, hopes, dreams, and desires as Homo sapiens evolve—or not—into their next incarnation. Cyber World presents diverse tales of humanity’s tomorrow, as told by some of today’s most gripping science fiction visionaries.
