Author Info
Bruce Sterling
Bruce Sterling is one of the three or four most important figures in the 1980s science fiction movement dubbed cyberpunk (the others being William Gibson, Pat Cadigan, and Rudy Rucker). His first two novels, INVOLUTION OCEAN (1977) and THE ARTIFICIAL KID (1980), along with a self-produced fanzine called Cheap Truth (which ran from 1984 to 1986), defined what cyberpunk meant. Sterling's rather spectacular vision of the future was further refined in 1985's SCHISMATRIX and several subsequent stories set in the same universe. His next novel, ISLANDS IN THE NET won the 1989 John W. Campbell Memorial Award. Astonishingly, more than half of Sterling's short fiction--not to mention most of his longer fiction--has been nominated for one award or another--with his story "Bicycle Repairman" winning the 1997 Hugo Award and "Taklamakan" winning the same in 1999. Sterling has also written a number of nonfiction pieces of varying lengths, including 1994's THE HACKER CRACKDOWN: LAW AND ORDER ON THE ELECTRONIC FRONTIER, one of the first--and more importantly, most objective and least hysterical--books about computer crime that flooded the marketplace in the 1990s. Sterling continues to be a major voice in science fiction as it moves ever forward, moments ahead of the pace of reality.
