About 20 years ago, before even IBM sold its first personal computer, Vernor Vinge published a collection of five stories that predicted and anticipated the cyberworld of technology as it exists today: Software bots, node-hopping, 3D chat rooms, warez, avatars, a hacker underground, and we are looking forward to neural browsers! Fast and easy reading stories in a vintage book, that's not easy to find, but worth it. Like a documentary that was written ahead of its time, cyberpunk science fiction is still yet to surprise us again.

READ THIS BOOK. It has NOT gone stale. It's more relevant than ever. It's STILL mind-blowing.

True names is the first entry in the cyberpunk genre. It's well worth hunting down if you are fan of Sci-Fi.

My favorite of the early cyberpunk stories though is John Brunner's Shockwave Rider. This novel introduces the now widely used metaphor of pathogens for malign computer programs using the terms phage and worm.

This is a classic, and I was really glad to get it on the Kindle. Very prescient author.

I usually don't enjoy short stories, but I made an exception for this book because I had heard good things about True Names. Vinge does an amazing job of character/plot development in each of these short stories. The common theme of "singularity" is explored in each.
