Neon Leviathan by T.R. Napper - Book Review 10, Aug

Neon Leviathan, a journey into the ruthless future that deeply reflects our own society today, just with the technology of 70 years ahead of us. It is sinister, disturbing and full of atrocities that inhabit every grim dark book.


Neon Leviathan by T.R. Napper Book Review 18, Feb


Cyberpunk remains one of the most enduring new genres of science fiction, having been created during the Reaganite/Thatcher era with an idea that computers as well as corrupt looter capitalism would eventually proliferate beyond all control. Indeed, there's a solid argument that cyberpunk is no longer a science fiction genre because so much of what it predicted has come to pass. The video games WATCH_DOGS and WATCH_DOGS 2 take place in the present-day of Chicago and San Fransisco while otherwise being classic cyberpunk tales of hackers versus the evil rich. There's still cyberpunk tales in the near and far future, though, like the BBC's BLACK MIRROR and ALTERED CARBON (now on Netflix).
