The lifestyle and technology in the novel Theatrica reflect cyberpunk themes, such as the techno raves, the intranet system, and the barcodes on the back of people's necks. Computers may liberate humanity from nature, but humanity is part of nature, and power over nature may mean power over humanity; a thinking machine may take over humanity's principal function and leave people, as in Jack Williamson's 1947 story, with nothing to do but to sit "With Folded Hands." Cyberpunk is about the seductive qualities of corruption and decay… It doesn’t have to be dirty or grimy on the physical level.

It has seen occasional revivals, making it a subgenre. They arrive by teleporter, and each week they receive a food parcel by teleportation, but they must otherwise fend for themselves. Streetlethal is Barnes working solo and coming up with what was described as “a pre-Neuromancer cyberpunk blaxpoitation kungfu pulp novel.” I was in on every level. The most common way to think of this is like the acts in a play, since many novelists still use this format for writing their own stories.

I guess I had thought there was not much other "science" out there. Both are set in the near future, in a world where cybernetics are prominent. Nobody in her right mind expected to crew on the starship Enterprise or jaunt back to the Jurassic, but for a thousand dollars or so you could stick your head through the screen of a personal computer and breathe 100 percent pure cyberspace. I'm into the cyberpunk thing mostly for aesthetics.

Jeter has always had a brilliant imagination and with this novel, he lets it fly. To write effectively in this subgenre, an author must generally have a good grasp of the scientific principles involved. The vocals are an angry Pee Wee Herman meets Bobcat Goldthwait when he's speaking normally. [Update: I decided to include this after all. No one legislates techno­logies into emergence—it actually seems to be quite a random thing. The paradigm was William Gibson's highly successful novel Neuromancer, a near-future thriller about computer hackers, artificial intelligence and corporate warfare.

Good books to read include Dune, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and The Handmaid's Tale. On the phone recently, I suggested to Delany that Asimov’s poor attempt at humor—which, whatever its intent, also served as a reminder, as Delany notes in “Racism and Science Fiction,” that his racial identity would forever be in the minds of his white peers, no matter the occasion—foreshadowed a more recent controversy, centered on a different set of sci-fi awards.

Cyberpunk delves into the idea of melding machine with man, viewing the human part largely as “meat” that isn’t good enough as it is, so must be cybernetically and mechanically enhanced. The speculative fiction genre known as “science fiction” has been around in one form or other for hundreds of years. A warning comes to them: Godzilla is approaching, swimming underwater, and will pass beneath them. The correlation of cyberpunk and postmodernism however is not limited to the existence of cyberpunk as a coagulation of the different factors within science fiction tales.
