    City Come A Walkin' eBook Ý City ComeEpub city kindle, come book, walkin' pdf, City Come book, City Come A Walkin' eBookBefore reading this book I would have said that Ridley Scott's Blade Runner 1982 was the first true piece of cyberpunk because it introduced the aesthetic that has defined the subgenre so than any common story elements But John Shirley’s City Come A Walkin' 1980 had the cyberpunk aesthetic even earlier a different strain of it perhaps but cyberpunk nonetheless The ways in which this work serves as the origin of many cyberpunk elements and also breaks from some of the most common cyberpunk tropes is thought provoking and the best part

    City Come A Walkin' eBook Ý City ComeEpub city kindle, come book, walkin' pdf, City Come book, City Come A Walkin' eBookFour stars for seminality Is that a word Two stars for my actual reading pleasure So I split the difference for this rating This book really puts the punk in cyberpunk In fact this is the first cyberpunk novel ever written Future entrees in the subgenre tended to stress the cyber element But City Come a Walkin' is one of the most punk books I have ever read That's a good thing It's got punk attitude and one of the main characters is a rocker It's got a hard tough edge depicting gritty street life with plenty of action and violence And that's the m

    City Come A Walkin' eBook Ý City ComeEpub city kindle, come book, walkin' pdf, City Come book, City Come A Walkin' eBookOddly prescient while also dated I read this trying to remember what it was like reading SF at 16 years of age A simple straightforward SF read in the same vein as Matheson's I AM LEGEND Leiber's OUR LADY OF DARKNESS and Dick's MARTIAN TIME SLIP

    City Come A Walkin' eBook Ý City ComeEpub city kindle, come book, walkin' pdf, City Come book, City Come A Walkin' eBookWilliam Gibson in his introduction to CITY COME A WALKIN’ says that with this novel John Shirley all but invented cyberpunk Gibson even admits unconsciously stealing from the book when he wrote his groundbreaking sci fi All this is true I just wish I’d come across Shirley’s weird tale of San Francisco as a sentient being when it was first published in 1980 or even when this reprint was reissued in the late 1990s The story is fun to read if ridiculous and even the rock and roll color added borders on silly though Shirley is also a seminal figure in the Portland punk scene of the 1970s All this is to say that it’s not you it’s me

    City Come A Walkin' eBook Ý City ComeEpub city kindle, come book, walkin' pdf, City Come book, City Come A Walkin' eBookI was really hoping for this to kick ass Unfortunately it's just mediocre People William Gibson claim that this is the 1st cyberpunk book I'm not sure it really ualifies There are a few ideas that might be considered proto cyberpunk but mostly it's just a book about violence and the mafia Meh Decent writing but a waste of time
