In the early ‘80s, a new genre of science fiction appeared. A genre emancipated from the old utopian vision of his predecessors, prospecting on an ultra-technological dark and raw future without goals or ideals or heroes: the cyberpunk genre.
Though it has no official definition, cyberpunk is characterized by multiple elements which can be used to classify a work, an activity, a behavior, an attitude as cyberpunk.
To illustrate the genre, here is an anticipation fiction describing a world that has completely toppled over. This fiction was written to accompany the latest post-industrial electro album of Mind Teardown
