About the Author

from reason.com:"In the 1980s, Bruce Sterling became a leader of the'cyberpunk' revolution , a literary movement that combined the artistic ambition of science fiction's 1960s New Wave with the hard-core speculation associated with Verne, Wells, Heinlein, and Clarke. Cyberpunk's chief theme was the way technologies evolve us even as we evolve them, and its influence can be seen in almost every science fiction writer of note today, from Ken MacLeod to Alastair Reynolds to Cory Doctorow. Neuromancer author William Gibson may have been the best-known of the cyberpunks, but the movement's chief theorist and propagandist was Sterling, whose writing covered far more territory than that of his peers..."Sterling lives in Austin, Texas. He is a design professor "at the moment" , the "Visionary in Residence" at the Art centre College of Design in Pasadena, California.He has appeared on Nightline, The Late Show, MTV, and is the author of nine novels, three of which were selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year. The Difference Engine, co-written with William Gibson, was a national bestseller. He has also published three short-story collections and two nonfiction books. He has written for many magazines, including Newsweek, Fortune, Harper's, Details, Whole Earth Review, and Wired, where he has been a contributing writer since its inception. He does public speaking "as a hobby," and has addressed academics, market experts, experimental media groups, phone regulators, state bureaucrats, and architects, among others.


"Bitingly satiric-and quite often brilliant."
