Cavallaro explores a number of interesting philosophical links within the cyberpunk genre - human enhancement and technology, virtual reality and myth - and some of those explorations are truly superb. but the piece is so dense with philosophy-speak that, for someone not highly educated in the subject, many chapters were close to unapproachable.

Shelves: cyberpunk
Informative, clever and intriguing. A blend of Gothic and SF theory. Enjoyable for the Gibson theorist.
