SFSignal’s Interactive Flowchart to NPR’s 100 Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels

SFSignal.com has a useful, interactive flowchart to find something to read on NPR’s listener-compiled Best 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels here. The Science Fiction > Cyberpunk > Gritty Noir (William Gibson’s Neuromancer) | Neo-Victorial (Neal Stephenson’s The Diamond Age, or a Young Lady’s Illustrated Primer) | Samurai (Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash) seems to make sense–I suppose it illustrates that cyberpunk lives on in the popular imagination, beyond the movement per se.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
