Review of 'Transreal Cyberpunk' on Goodreads

4 stars

A collection of supremely weird stories. If you liked Semiotext(e) SF, this is a good companion.

Despite the title, not a lot here can be described as "cyberpunk" -- it's probably called this because it's the collaboration between two figures most closely identified with the cyberpunk movement. Instead, this ranges from gonzo biopunk to bizarro.
