--]absolutely seminal in cyberpunk (Brunner's Shockwave Rider being the
--]only thing I know of roughly comparable),
Bruner was so far ahead of the curve it was scary. SHockwave Rider, Stand
On Zanzibar, The Sheep Look Up all are great fiction of many of todays
Lots of the Shockwave Rider are still unfolding.
Ive read a lot of Bruner, and its alsmost as if there was this slice of
his life where he was being vistied by either muses or aliens that kept
filling him with insight well byond his other works.
I like most of his stuff, dont get me wrong, but there is a core of his
work which stnads above and beyond.
(one can almost say the the hacker techniques of Shockwave rider are much
closer to what we have today than the Neuromancer style techinques)
