Rewired Cover Final

Rewired: The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology edited by James Patrick Kelly and John Kessel

From the grittiness of Mirrorshades to the Singularity and beyond, it’s time to reboot the revolution. Are you ready?

These sixteen extreme stories reveal a government ninja routed by a bicycle repairman, the inventor of digitized paper hijacked by his college crush, a dead boy trapped in a warped storybook paradise, and the queen of England attacked with the deadliest of forbidden technology: a working modem. You’ll meet Manfred Macx, renegade meme-broker, Red Sonja, virtual reality sex-goddess, and Felix, humble sys-admin and post-apocalyptic hero.

Editors James Patrick Kelly and John Kessel (Feeling Very Strange: The Slipstream Anthology) have united cyberpunk visionaries William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, Pat Cadigan, and Walter Jon Williams with the new post-cyberpunk vanguard, including Cory Doctorow, Jonathan Lethem, and Paolo Bacigalupi. Including a canon-establishing introduction and excerpts from a hotly contested online debate, Rewired is the first anthology to define and capture the crackling excitement of the post-cyberpunks.

“Fascinating, and indispensable to any serious SF reader…Rewired is one of the best imaginable anthologies covering what SF is doing right now….”
—Andrew Wheeler

“…cyberpunk has grown past its rebel stage and is now not only capable of dazzling us with surfaces but also of speaking of the human condition….”

“…an excellent collection and a reminder that the short story is often the best venue for new ideas in the field.”
SF Crowsnest

“…sixteen inspiring, mind-altering stories…and every story in the bunch is a knockout.”
