For me, Formative Literature includes a fair sampling of Science Fiction’s subset from the “New Wave,” CyberPunk.
Neuromancer, by William Gibson, as an example, for one.
Late at night, poking at something on a tablet, I found a title that claimed to be CyberPunk, yet again.
The opening pages reminded me how much any genre can, at some point, become a sad parody of itself. Still, the writing was energetic and frenetic, with a story that caught my attetnion.
Perhaps a parable for post-modern times?
What I liked best was a “paperback” price, think pulp, type of price, old-school pocket paperback, priced at $1.99 or so. Quite worth it.Three Days in April
