Vinge posits that in a direct neurocybernetic interface, the information would be analogized by the brain into symbols it is comfortable with. The ‘place’ in which the Coven ‘meets,’ for example, is or seems to be a castle, guarded by a program which manifests itself as a fìrebreathing dragon, sitting in a magma moat, wearing an asbestos T-shirt.

I have also included the updated afterword by Prof. ion of True Names as I can make. I agree with Project Gutenberg, regarding the superiority of hard formatted plain ASCII over other formats. Except that this work requires some italics, so I’ve used a bastard mix of plain text and HTML.

This remarkable anthology reprints Hugo winner Vinge's (The Collected Stories of Vernor Vinge) "True Names" (1981), the story that began SF's cyberpunk revolution, with 11 essays showing its effect on science as well as fiction.

The weakest pieces are science-fictional, appearing pale in the shadow of Vinge's story.

READ THIS BOOK. It has NOT gone stale. It's more relevant than ever. It's STILL mind-blowing.

True names is the first entry in the cyberpunk genre. It's well worth hunting down if you are fan of Sci-Fi.

My favorite of the early cyberpunk stories though is John Brunner's Shockwave Rider. This novel introduces the now widely used metaphor of pathogens for malign computer programs using the terms phage and worm.

The book I ordered was packed super meticulously and with great care. I thought, why all this for a book? Open up the first page, there's a signature from Vernor Vinge... 5/5

This is a classic, and I was really glad to get it on the Kindle. Very prescient author.

I usually don't enjoy short stories, but I made an exception for this book because I had heard good things about True Names. Vinge does an amazing job of character/plot development in each of these short stories. The common theme of "singularity" is explored in each.

Goid book, arrived early!

Amazing story for being 30 years old. Still a pretty amazing view of a future cyberspace.
