RUDY RUCKER is a writer and mathematician who worked for twenty years as a Silicon Valley computer science professor.
Rucker is regarded as a contemporary master of science-fiction, and received the Philip K. Dick award twice. His thirty published books include both novels and non-fiction books on the fourth dimension, infinity, and the meaning of computation.
A founder of the cyberpunk school of science-fiction, Rucker also writes SF in a realistic style known as transrealism. His early cyberpunk four-book series was republished in 2010 as The Ware Tetralogy.
Rucker’s 2007 novel, Postsingular was something of a return to the cyberpunk style, as was the 2009 sequel, Hylozoic, in which every object on Earth comes to life. Recent novels include Jim and the Flims, Turing & Burroughs, and The Big Aha.
