Science Fiction and Fantasy may transport readers to a planet light-years away or deep inside the caves of a far-distant past. It is generally accepted that there is a "sliding scale" of hardness rather than something just being simply "hard" or "soft," although sometimes the terms hard or soft science fiction means whatever people want them to mean, and you'll rarely see much consensus except in obvious cases such as Star Wars ('"soft") and 2001: A Space Odyssey ("hard").

Snow Crash, when it rocks and rolls, which it often does, is like strapping yourself in for a dose a blisteringly fast anime: a near-chaos of cyberdelic images, methamphetamine-fueled concepts, quick bursts of characters and characterization, along with flights of pure digital fantasy. The horn sounds are soothing and soaring at the same time. The settings are usually post-industrial dystopias but tend to be marked by extraordinary cultural ferment and the use of technology in ways never anticipated by its creators ("the street finds its own uses for things").[2] Much of the genre's atmosphere echoes film noir, and written works in the genre often use techniques from detective fiction. "Classic cyberpunk characters were marginalized, alienated loners who lived on the edge of society in generally dystopic futures where daily life was impacted by rapid technological change, an ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information, and invasive modification of the human body." – Lawrence Person[3] Primary exponents of the cyberpunk field include William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Bruce Sterling, Pat Cadigan, Rudy Rucker, and John Shirley.

Gibson, William. "Thirteen views of a cardboard city." in Rewired: The post-Cyberpunk anthology. His research interests include metaphysics and epistemology of science (how scientists know what they know), the philosophy of psychology, and the logic behind knowledge and belief.

In the essay “Science Fiction from Spain” Mariano Villareal observes that one out of ten new genre releases in Spain is written by a woman. But this is mixed with a very high dose of humor and you get Spider Jerusalem, a gonzo journalist armed with a Bowel Distrupter and his filthy assistants, ready to take on a corrupt president. It shows our obsession with material goods, and technical, engineered solutions. At first, they were serialized in the pages of magazines such as Astounding and Amazing Stories, sharing the bill with the short fiction that, since the late 19th century, has always been the lifeblood of SF.

Not that the new image was any more profound or less stereotyped, but it was certainly different. I want them to be real people in a SFictionally doctored world.

Films based on Dick's works include Blade Runner (1982), Total Recall (1990), Impostor (2001), Minority Report (2002), Paycheck (2003), A Scanner Darkly (2006) and The Adjustment Bureau (2011).

Join us as we discuss why an ex-Sony exec loves piracy and if that marks the end of the cool pirate. In the 1977 movie, Obi-Wan described this mysterious entity as “what gives a Jedi his power. Alternatively the “representational apparatus of Science Fiction” might suggest that there is a sort of semiotic relationship between the langue and langage of Science Fiction, with “representational apparatus” being an example of the former, of the parlence of Science Fiction through which the langue (underlying system/orientations of Science Fiction) is articulated.

There's BBS-software that is still developed, pic related is from the official BBS of x/84. 84 posts and 7 image replies omitted. Rudy Rucker followed up 1982’s Software with Wetware (1988), putting his own unique spin on cyberpunk.
