In the otherwise celebratory Cyberpunk issue of the Mississippi Review, several irate critics fired back. “What we have here, folks,” argued Gregory Benford, “is a marketing strategy masquerading as a literary movement” (24). Such programs may even be given pleasing personalities so that they are more "user friendly." Important examples would include Don DeLillo’s Ratner’s Star (1976) and White Noise, Ted Mooney’s Easy Travel to Other Planets (1981), Joseph McElroy’s Plus (1976) and Women and Men (1986), Denis Johnson’s Fiskadoro (1985), Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (1985), William T.

I felt this immense gratitude when I finished, and I was sitting there looking at the last page, thinking, I’m glad I got a shot at this thing now, because for sure there are dozens of writers all around the world right this minute, thinking, I have to write about 9/11.

The most important SF publishing house is not so much in the government's hands as in nationalist or right-wing hands, and SF is really more of the Sakharov or Medvedev line of thinking, what is in our newspapers called "liberal" (which is, I think a stupid adjective in this context).

Benford is an SF author and professor of physics at the University of California, Irvine, where he has been a faculty member since 1971.
