About[edit]

Lily Yu, Cat Rambo, Matthew Kressel, Paolo Bacigalupi, Minister Faust, Stephen Graham Jones, Alyssa Wong, Keith Ferrell, and many others. Richard Kadrey wrote the book's foreword and Chuck Wendig and Warren Ellis provided blurbs, praising the collection. The book received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, who said the book expands the "already-fluid definition of cyberpunk".[4] [5] The book also features a companion soundtrack primarily composed of music by Klayton, who records as Celldweller, Circle of Dust, and Scandroid. There are also two tracks by Mega Drive.[6]
