cyberpunk

Yes, I know you kids today think that William Gibson invented cyberpunk. Well, you teenagers probably think The Matrix is the genesis of cyberpunk.

John Shirley came before Gibson, dammit.

murnkay and I were talking this weekend, and he is of the opinion that he and I are the only people who know of Shirley's novel City Come A-Walkin'. I said dude, can't be. He insisted that this was so.

So! A poll.


City Come A'Walkin', by John Shirley.

I've read it.

I haven't read it, but I've heard of it.
