Editorial Reviews


"Most [cybercrit] is pure hype. "Flame Wars" is different. "Flame Wars" is better. "Flame Wars" is like jacking into the heart of microprocessor darkness itself, like online surfing the Net Edge of the postmodern tidal wave. . . . Let the flame wars burn."
--Andrew Leonard," The Bay Guardian"

"Like it or not, we are becoming a culture more and more entwined in new electronic media. To be a well-informed and culturally aware person you need to start thinking about how our society relates to these media. "Flame Wars" is a great place to start."
--Caius van Nauhuys, "Whole Earth Review"

"[C]onsistently smart and bold in its analysis. . . . [I]t will make you conscious of the many assumptions you bring to understanding this new cultural space, as well as make you aware of the complex of ideas that have combined in the making of a more general cyberculture."
--Don Palm, "H-Net Book Reviews"

From the Back Cover

""Flame Wars" . . . connects the dots of cyberculture's pixilated universe."--"Voice Literary Supplement"

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Interesting read and source for further readings into cyberculture (I subsequently ordered Lady El). The interview with Samuel Delany alone was worth the ticket of admission.

Format: Paperback
Slackerbabble, fringe technoculture, magic and cyberspace, memes, calculating engines, virtual environments and synthetic reason. Flame Wars has it all..
