Join host Adrian M. Gibson and authors Malka Older, T. R. Napper, Lincoln Michel and Craig Lea Gordon as they decode the (virtual) realities of cyberpunk’s past, present and future. During the panel they discuss what attracts them to cyberpunk, the genre’s origins in noir, the contrast between cities and apocalyptic landscapes, worn out cyberpunk tropes and aesthetics, big themes like biotech and transhumanism, memory and reality, information and AI, as well as how the genre can be resuscitated in the 21st-century and much more.
The Body Scout is my first Lincoln Michel book, and I have to say I was impressed with the writing, for the most part. Lots of intrigue and mystery, and characters with interesting storylines. The author did a great job of catching – and keeping – my interest.
