In fiction news...

I want to do cyberpunk. I don't mean the semi-cyberpunk dystopian future that's often a backdrop to my fiction, I mean real cyberpunk. Or maybe cipherpunk, if I can swing it. Enhanced humans, worldwide computer network which is visually immersive, massive corporations and franchises, rebellion, the whole nine yards.

The only things I have for inspiration is an image of Croatian hackers imprisoned, forced to write spam e-mail virii and the Muse track "Deadstar". And a weird image I've got of spider software, ever since I started using it.

Hrm. Time for anoher reinvention of the genre, methinks. Then I'm going to do something stereotypically pulp. Yeah.
