Kelly How are the Foundation novels Cyberpunk at all?


message 2: by Jan (last edited Sep 14, 2013 06:06PM) (new)

Jan Halfar I'd say too they are not.
The same as 'Pattern Recognition' and probably some other in the list.
Is any Dune book a cyberpunk ? I only read the original one.


message 3: by Gokhan (new)

Gokhan Dune is not Cyberpunk.


message 4: by Michael (new)

Michael Bacon I removed Dune and the Foundation books from this list because they do not hold any semblance to the cyberpunk genre.

Ash Othello? Hah. Okay.

Gregor Leseratte Nice list!
Thanks!


message 8: by Sassa (new)

Sassa Mifrass I am so happy to see how far this list has grown. I think I started it with about 25 books, desperate to find more in the genre - and now there are 84! Awesome work people :D


message 9: by Jan (last edited Mar 10, 2014 09:33AM) (new)

Jan Halfar I just subjectively wonder what "Snow Crash" is doing on 2nd place.
As my friend said to my complaints about the book being weird: "That guy simply can't write" :\


message 10: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Freedom-Daniel Suarez, is on here twice. #43 and #90.


message 11: by William (new)

William Watchmen is more of a "Steampunk" Graphic novel no?

I'm audio booking it now. Luv it

No, Watchmen is neither Steam nor Cyberpunk. There is nothing tying it to the genre. If anything its superhero scifi.

Dune Chapterhouse is still on the list. Also Heads up Mirrorshades, and When Gravity Fails are on the list twice.


message 15: by Dan (new)

Dan McKeown A list of great cyberpunk novels and there's no Bester's The Demolished Man?

And arguably the greatest cyberpunk trilogy of all time, by the incomparable John Brunner, doesn't even have one mention?! No Stand on Zanzibar, The Sheep Look Up, or The Shockwave Rider anywhere to be seen?

The thread necro will be worth it if someone adds at least one of these four amazing books to the list.
