I know this post is 2 days old, which puts it in some sort of reddit graveyard, but I'll add my thoughts.

First, Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan is the definitive "modern" cyberpunk novel so check that out for sure.

Also, for more of a "5 minutes into the future" cyberpunk, check out the Nexus trilogy by Ramez Naam. The third book in the trilogy won the Philip K. Dick Award if that means anything to you.

Another series I liked, which has a great dark humor to it, is the Avery Cates series by Jeff Somers. Seriously, just read the 'About the Author' section at the bottom of that page to get an idea of the humor.

Have you read William Gibson's The Peripheral? It's a neat update on Gibson's cyberpunk vision now that the world has changed.

Someone else recommended Cory Doctorow. I actually think Little Brother is his best work, though it's young adult so prepare yourself for that.

Finally, I feel weird recommending this, but if you were a child of the 80s, have you read Ready Player One? It's pretty polarizing in this sub since you either love it or you hate it, but it is a popular modern cyberpunk novel.

Oh! Okay, well the blurb reads:

"A woman who dreams of machines. A paper lantern that falls in love. The most compelling video game you've never played and that nobody can ever play twice. This collection of Catherine M. Valente's stories and poems with Japanese themes includes the lauded novella "Silently and very fast", the award-nominated "Thirteen Ways of Looking at Space/Time" and "Ghosts of Gunkanjima" - which originally in a book smaller than your palm, published in a limited edition of twenty-four. ALSO INCLUDED ARE TWO NEW STORIES: The semiautobiographical, metafictional, and utterly magical "Ink, Water, Milk" and the cinematic, demon-haunted "Story No. 6"."

I hope that was what you're looking for! I picked it up on a whim because I liked the art and its interesting allusion to the Haruhi Suzumiya series.

There is a website, too, although I haven't looked into it:

I'll leave you with a note of praise from a critic:

"I finished this collection late one night and had what felt like a year's worth of intense dreams" - Charles Yu, Author of "Sorry Please Thank You"

EDIT: So apparently the site I linked you to contains malware [according to chrome], so I've looked around and found it on Amazon! I hope this helps! It's way cheaper than what I got it for!

I saw it when it first came out a long time ago. I remember reading about Mitnick from this book so, I was really excited to see the movie, but It felt very 'made for TV' quality. Not nessecarily inaccurate, just treated more like a cop drama.

The book was very good, as was Bruce Sterling's

I emailed Mr. Sterling about hacking when I was in highschool, and he was one of the first people to suggest that I not take it too far, and instead work towards building things. I still follow that advice today.

Also, if you haven't read it yet, The Cuckoos Egg was a fun read

It was that book that inspired me to work as a programmer for a university.

Good movies about hacking are few and far between, I'm afraid. It's all too easy to use Hacking as 'magic', and just make it rediculous.

Most of these are very early cyberpunk, the progenitors of the genre if you will. As such I'm not sure if they can be described as necessarily obscure but I don't see many of them mentioned that often (admittedly I'm somewhat new to /r/cyberpunk so you guys might talk about them all the time, in which case please disregard). As a final note not all of these are available on the Kindle market. Nevertheless here's a few that leap to mind -

  1. When Gravity Fails by George Alec Effinger which has two sequels if you enjoy it, the third being better than the second imo.

  2. The Ware Tetrology by Rudy Rucker

  3. Islands in the Net by Bruce Sterling. He also edited the early cyberpunk anthology Mirrorshades which is worth checking out along with a several of his other works.

  4. Mindplayers by Pat Cadigan who also wrote a few others worth looking at.

  5. Frontera by Lewis Shiner.

  6. I hesitate to mention this one as it's hardly obscure but if all you have seen is the film which is based off it, it is definitely worth getting Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K Dick.

  7. Vurt by Jeff Noon.

  8. Farewell Horizontal by K W Jeter along with his other novels Glass Hammer and Dr. Adder.

  9. Someone else mentioned Walter Jon Williams novels which I would also highly recommend.

Wow - I'm envious. Would have loved to see that. For anyone curious here's a look at the exhibit: GENGA

And there's also beautiful exhibition catalog: Amazon link

u/Suicide_Necktie · 7 pointsr/Cyberpunk

Awesome Blade Runner piece. If anyone is interested in some reading material, the movie this image is based on is based on the novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" Phenomenal read.

u/null0x · 2 pointsr/Cyberpunk

Someone I like to shill for is Sean Kennedy, his novel Immersion 2086 is fantastic for the plot and features elements I don't think many have thought to mix with the cyberpunk genre. I wouldn't want to spoil it for you so I won't mention what those elements are but if you're familiar with his previous works you'll be pleasantly surprised.

also check out tales form the afternow (start at stream jack and work your way up)

If you haven't picked it up yet, do so. Dan Luvisi's Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter.

It's awesome. The art is amazing. Read it while listening to Deltron 3030.

I'm guessing this isn't exactly what you had in mind, but I really enjoyed this book when I was in high school:

CYBERPUNK: Outlaws and Hackers on the Computer Frontier

My parents found it at a garage sale and I was just starting to get really into computers. It tells the true stories of Kevin Mitnick, Robert T. Morris, and the Chaos Computer Club. I had never really heard anything about true hacking at this point and it was riveting.

Well being my own stuff you can look through my other work (, but I think this is kind of unique even for me. I'm intending to run with this style for more projects so I can give you a heads up if I do anything.

Other than that, I can only think of Cannabis works:

and the guy who drew Akira:

Genga: Otomo Katsuhiro Original Pictures

There's gotta be others though, so if I find em I'll hit you up ;)

u/MindCorrupt · 2 pointsr/Cyberpunk

If you enjoy Gibson's novels you should give 'Immersion: 2086' by Sean Kennedy a go. Not quite as well written but still really enjoyable.

Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter

Everyone here needs to buy this book. He's releasing a revised copy in November that's $45 as opposed to it's initial $500+ price point. A very cyberpunk feel with great artwork!

u/enderpanda · 2 pointsr/Cyberpunk

I loved that magazine! I still have my copy of A User's Guide to the New Edge.

u/mr-wizrd · 3 pointsr/Cyberpunk

Neuromancer. Read it (Amazon UK non-affiliate link) or listen to the reading of the book produced by the BBC. I think this version is somewhat better than the Audible version, but that may be because I heard it from the BBC first.

You will thank yourself later.

u/Roobomatic · 3 pointsr/Cyberpunk

This is from a book called the Cyberpunk's Handbook.

I had a copy in like 1998... dont know what I did with it.

> Stålenhag’s paintings and stories take place in an alternate version of Sweden in the ’80s and ’90s

From the Amazon description of his book.

The Ware Tetralogy by Rudy Rucker (intro by Gibson) -

More -

This is a superb read and completely original. It is hard to put down once you start. Four books, 866 8x11 pages, free on .pdf -

Check out Towers by Matthew Bryant. It's very cyberpunk and the main character deals and uses drugs throughout.

u/conairh · 2 pointsr/Cyberpunk

You guys should read Machine Man by Max barry.

Looks at bionic limbs & enhancements etc in a very Black Mirror way. When I see this gif I feel uneasy...

u/the-first-19-seconds · 7 pointsr/Cyberpunk

Have you read the book Machine Man?

That's kind of how the book starts

u/theweirdbeard · 1 pointr/Cyberpunk


It's a short story anthology, edited by Bruce Sterling. William Gibson is also a contributing author. I consider this book to be genre-defining, in part because Bruce Sterling has a long preface where he talks a lot about what the cyberpunk movement is and how it came to be.

>Simon Stålenhag’s Tales from the Loop is a wildly successful crowd-funded project that takes viewers on a surprising sci-fi journey through various country and city landscapes―from small towns in Sweden and the deserts of Nevada to the bitter chill of Siberia―where children explore and engage with abandoned robots, vehicles, and machinery large and small, while dinosaurs and other creatures wander our roads and fields.
>Stålenhag’s paintings and stories take place in an alternate version of Sweden in the ’80s and ’90s, primarily in the countryside of Mälaröarna, a string of islands just west of Stockholm, and how this reality came about: the development of the Loop, a large particle accelerator and the side effects of the massive project.
>These incredibly captivating works and accompanying text capture perhaps a not-too-distant reality that is both haunting and imminent: addressing the many ways developing technology and nature can create havoc and wonder in our world―plus, its impact on the next generation. This is the English edition of the first book in Swedish that sold out in its initial printing.
