Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Arranged loosely in order of publication, the 16 diverse selections in this decade-spanning anthology add up to a plausible snapshot of cyberpunk's short-form evolution. Kelly and Kessel (Feeling Very Strange) clearly describe cyberpunk counterculture in a cogent introduction, yet draw only one story from a nongenre source (Greg Egan's Yeyuka) and greatly undervalue the subgenre's ability, at its most popular, to reach beyond SF's core audience. While some entries (Charles Stross's Lobsters; Cory Doctorow's When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth) focus strongly on techno-geek culture, others apply high-tech ideas in more down-to-earth contexts (Mary Rosenblum's Search Engine; Paolo Bacigalupi's The Calorie Man). The critical matter is too scant for academic readers and too intrusive for genre fans; discussion of specific stories is extremely sparse, and excerpts from correspondence between Kessel and Bruce Sterling distract rather than enlighten. Readers seeking a thorough critical study should look elsewhere, but those looking for well-told stories will be satisfied. (Nov.)

Review

“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....”
Tangent

“...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.”

I only occasionally dip into science-fiction and when I do I'm looking for things that stretch my head, that challenge my world-view and that open realms of possibility. This anthology met those needs and more.

Every story was well worth reading (no duds) and several were excellent.

Admittedly the anthology has a rather dark cast (as expected, given the cyberpunk focus) and some of the auxiliary material has a bit of an attitude (again, a cp staple), but the stories were wholly engrossing.

This is one of the best anthologies I've read in years

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Anne M. Hunter VINE VOICE on December 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
So the editors of this SF anthology believe that cyberpunk became, after more than twenty years, too much of a popular cliche, or brand, to continue as a useful SF subgenre, and present these stories as stories that move beyond cyberpunk to a new paradigm. They feel pretty much like cyberpunk to me, but perhaps a bit off-beat. There are some very memorable stories by famous and less-noted authors, I especially enjoyed Swanwick's "The Dog Said Bow-Wow", Bacigalupi's "The Calorie Man", and Doctorow's "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth". Even the stories that started out slowly and were hard to relate to for a while ended up being very interesting by their ends. I'll definitely hope for a second anthology from these editors.

I found this an enjoyable collection, but the quality was a bit inconsistent. One story, in particular, was knock-your-socks-off fantastic: "The Wedding Album" by Marusek. Wow!

Charles Stross' "Lobsters" is also here, but so far I've found it in two anthologies, published online, and of course, as part of Accelerando. I'm getting a bit tired of seeing it reproduced everywhere, despite it being very good.
