Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743486528, Mass Market Paperback)

Science fiction reviewer Cynthia Ward calls two-time Arthur C. Clarke award-winner Pat Cadigan "The Queen of Cyberpunk" in her review of Cadigan's acclaimed 1999 work, Tea From an Empty Cup. Ward writes of "the genius of her near-future extrapolations, and the beauty of her writing. No one else has explored and illuminated the mind-machine interface with the keen and relentless intelligence she demonstrates in her novels Mindplayers, Synners, Fools, and the long-awaited Tea from an Empty Cup. In The Ultimate Cyberpunk, Cadigan takes readers through the evolution of this influential science fiction genre, from the groundbreaking forefathers of the field such as Alfred Bester, Philip K. Dick and Samuel R. Delany to the founding members of the cyberpunk movement, such as William Gibson, Bruce Sterling and forward through the such innovators as Neal Stephenson, Lewis Shiner and Rudy Rucker. In over 300 pages of stories, Cadigan presents the cyberpunk world in which reality and virtual reality intersect. The growing impact of the Internet on our sense of community, the seduction of a world behind the screen and the inherent dangers of a society in which any information can be hacked, stolen and sold, are some of the topics explored by our best cyberpunk writers. As a bonus, The Ultimate Cyberpunk includes an exclusive 16-page full color section of the 'lost' second volume of the authorized adaptation of William Gibson's Neuromancer, a novel which to this day remains the defining work of the cyberpunk movement.
