Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction set in a near-future world. The protagonist is often a hacker or programmer who uses computers and/or cyberspace to resolve a plot conflict. Part of the story frequently occurs in a virtual reality setting. Stories in the style of the popular film Blade Runner fall within this category. 

William S. Gibson is considered the father of cyberpunk.

Cyberpunk is a science fiction subgenre on the wane. It became popular in the 1980s, and was a direct response to the utopian trend in science fiction.

Book Country's genre map will continue to change as new literary categories emerge and others fall out of fashion. If you write cyberpunk novels, explore the subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
