“Cyberpunk literature, in general, deals with marginalized people in technologically-enhanced cultural “systems”. In Cyberpunk stories’ settings, there is usually a “system” which dominates the lives of most “ordinary” people, be it an oppressive government, a group of large, paternalistic corporations or a fundamentalist religion. These systems are enhanced by certain technologies, particularly “information technology” (computers, the mass media), making the system better at keeping those within it, inside it. Often this technological system extends into its human “components” as well, via brain implants, prosthetic limbs, cloned or genetically engineered organs, etc. Humans themselves become part of “the Machine”. This is the “cyber” aspect of Cyberpunk. However, in any cultural system, there are always those who live on its margins, on “the Edge”: criminals, outcasts, visionaries or those who simply want freedom for its own sake. Cyberpunk literature focuses on these people, and often on how they turn the system’s technological tools to their own ends. This is the “punk” aspect of Cyberpunk.”
