Cyberpunk is an industrial myth of the near future, a new techno-surreal fiction. Coming off the heels of The '80s, it's no surprise that Sonic SatAM featured these themes. If in the cyberpunk novel humans are beginning to cross the man/machine boundary by replacing more and more of their "meat" with cybernetic implants, then often Dick's characters-like Commander Data on Star Trek-are frequently seeking to become more human.

Forster’s idea has always stuck with me—that a writer who’s fully in control of the characters hasn’t even started to do the work. For example, the movie “Star Trek: First Contact” is about other times (it’s set in the 2060s and in the 24th century), it involves other worlds (the Romulan Neutral Zone and an alternate future Earth in which the Borg have conquered humanity), other beings (the Borg, the android Data and the Vulcans). As if the society (and time) portrayed were not really the present or a near future either.

Alfred Bester was among the first dozen science-fiction writers I read when I was twelve years old, and I remember being amazed, doing my own science-fiction-writer reconnaissance work a decade or two later, that someone I had discovered that young still seemed to me to be so amazing.
