I was surprised by the fact that such a foundation work of cyberpunk was so little discussed online; and that how much of what little discussion existed was dedicated to the tired old “what the author got right/wrong about the future,” as if the primary function of science fiction is to accurately divine every aspect of the future right down to the type and capacity of storage media that will be common. When was published, the World Wide Web didn't exist; few people had access to computers for leisure use; virtual reality hadn't made it out of the labs.

A few interesting things emerge here for thinking critically about Science Fiction. But this is only something you do when you are deeply in love with the genre; if that’s not the case, as a young inexperienced writer you try to get as many readers as possible, you want your first novel to be a success and make lots of money . . . and that is not usually true for science fiction, so you try to do something more like El Tiempo Entre Costuras César Mallorquí: The same thing was true in the United States, for example during the Golden Age.

Every once in a while, you’re standing out there in the shadows of this X+1 space, and you watch this new and delicate animal stop there in the real, take a bearing, and then scurry out into it, embedding itself deeper than anyone will ever be able to find. The same basic story is played out in Johnny Mnemonic as well.
