42. Wamphyri Читать →

Автор: Both of Dragosani's legs were broken and lay at weird angles. His arms hung slack down the wall to the skirting, elbows just off the floor, forearms at ninety degrees and hands projecting well beyond the cuffs of his jacket. They were hands like claws, big, powerful and grasping, frozen in Dragosani's final spasm. His…

45. Bicycle Repairman Читать →

Автор: Repeated tinny banging woke Lyle in his hammock. Lyle groaned, sat up, and slid free into the tool-crowded aisle of his bike shop. Lyle hitched up the black elastic of his skintight shorts and plucked yesterday's grease-stained sleeveless off the workbench. He glanced blearily at his chronometer as he picked his way toward the door.…

Автор: We cannot separate the historic accidents of the society in which we were born from the axiomatic bases of the universe. –J. D. Bernal, 1925 The deadliest bullshit is odorless and transparent. –Wm. Gibson, 1988

47. Cyberpunk in the Nineties Читать →

Автор: This is my sixth and last column for INTERZONE, as I promised a year ago when I began this series. I've enjoyed doing these pieces, and would like to thank the energetic editor and indulgent readership of INTERZONE. A special thanks to those who contributed terms and comments for “The SF Workshop Lexicon,” which remains an ongoing project, and will…

48. CyberView 1991 Читать →

Автор: They called it “CyberView "91.” Actually, it was another “SummerCon” — the traditional summer gathering of the American hacker underground. The organizer, 21 year old “Knight Lightning,” had recently beaten a Computer Fraud and Abuse rap that might have put him in jail for thirty years. A little discretion seemed in order. The convention hotel,…

49. Essays. Catscan Columns Читать →

Автор: A kind of SF folk tradition surrounds the founding figure of Jules Verne. Everyone knows he was a big cheese back when the modern megalopolis of SFville was a 19th-century village. There's a bronze monument to him back in the old quarter of town, the Vieux Carre. You know, the part the French built, back…

50. Essays. FSF Columns Читать →

Автор: Dreaming of space-flight, and predicting its future, have always been favorite pastimes of science fiction. In my first science column for F&SF, I can't resist the urge to contribute a bit to this grand tradition. A science-fiction writer in 1991 has a profound advantage over the genre's pioneers. Nowadays, space-exploration…

51. GURPS" LABOUR LOST Читать →

Автор: Some months ago, I wrote an article about the raid on Steve Jackson Games, which appeared in my “Comment” column in the British science fiction monthly, INTERZONE (#44, Feb 1991). This updated version, specially re-written for dissemination by EFF, reflects the somewhat greater knowledge I've gained to date, in the course of research on an upcoming nonfiction book, THE HACKER CRACKDOWN:…

52. Heavy Weather Читать →

Автор: Smart machines lurked about the suite, their power lights in the shuttered dimness like the small red eyes of bats. The machines crouched in inches in white walls of Mexican stucco: an ionizer, a television, a smoke alarm, a squad of motion sensors. A vaporizer hissed and bubbled gently in the corner, emitting a potent…

53. In Paradise Читать →

Автор: THE MACHINES BROKE DOWN so much that it was comical, but the security people never laughed about that. Felix could endure the delay, for plumbers billed by the hour. He opened his tool kit, extracted a plastic flask and had a solid nip of Scotch. The Moslem girl was chattering into her phone. Her dad…

54. Islands in the Net Читать →

Автор: The sea lay in simmering quiet, a slate-green gumbo seasoned with warm mud. Shrimp boats trawled the horizon. Pilings rose in clusters, like blackened fingers, yards out in the gentle surf. Once, Galveston …

55. Luciferase Читать →

Автор: His flesh lit up with erotic need. The urge within him was beyond comprehension. It was cosmic: its own pure justification. Light shocked out of him in a tumbling chemical rush. Someone smashed into him with a violent scrabble of claws. He lost his grip on the grass stem and fell spinning into the dirt.…

56. Maneki Neko Читать →

Автор: “I can't go on,” his brother said. Tsuyoshi Shimizu looked thoughtfully into the screen of his pasokon. His older brother's face was shiny with sweat from a late-night drinking bout. “It's only a career,” said Tsuyoshi, sitting up on his futon and adjusting his pajamas. “You worry too much.” “All that overtime!” his brother whined.…

57. Taklamakan Читать →

Автор: A bone-dry frozen wind tore at the earth outside, its lethal howling cut to a muffled moan. Katrinko and Spider Pete were camped deep in a crevice in the rock, wrapped in furry darkness. Pete could hear Katrinko breathing, with a light rattle of chattering teeth. The neuter's yeasty armpits smelled like nutmeg. Spider Pete…

58. The Hacker Crackdown Читать →

59. The Littlest Jackal Читать →

Автор: When Bruce Sterling called me last year to say he could no longer do a science column on a regular basis, I begged him to continue. I pleaded with him. (Remember, we mentioned the art of editorial begging in a previous issue.) When it became clear that I could not change his mind, I asked that he send…

60. The Manifesto of January 3, 2000 Читать →

Автор: The rapidly approaching millennium offers a unique cultural opportunity. After many years of cut-and-paste, appropriation, detournement and neo-retro ahistoricality, postmodernity is about to end. Immediately after the end of the fin de siecle, there will be a sudden and intense demand for genuine novelty. Any new year offers a chance for sweeping resolutions and brave…
