This is reasonable solid anthology, with generally decent standard of stories.What makes it interesting is that it was supposedly the definitive collection that helped to define cyberpunk. Reading it 30-odd years later,this is rather hard to see. There are a variety of stories, post-apocalypse, time-travel, drug stories etc. It is hard thought, to see this as a cyberpunk collection, let lone a definitive one. There is in relatively little that in retrospect one would recognise as being cyberpunk or being distinct from the rest of SF of the period.
