These books are great fun. Read then in dead tree form many years ago.

Very funky and perverted cyberpunk.

It also states that the books will be available via ManyBooks in many different formats shortly for those that can't/don't want to convert them themselves from the RTF.

The Ware Tetralogy - Free at ManyBooks

I often forget to check Many Books, I have so 'many books' to read that weeding my way through all their offerings isn't too high a priority.

But I found this http://manybooks.net/titles/ruckerro...gy_cc2010.html

Four (4!) novels by Rudy Rucker - Software; Wetware; Freeware; Realware.

These are mandatory reading in the cyberpunk genera.

Many Books!!!

While I said that these books were mandatory reading for CyberPunk I don't believe they are, exactly, CyberPunk. More like CyberFreak or CyberHip or CyberBeBop, William Gibson, who wrote a Forward for this volumn, says it's Surrealism.

In any case it's a mind bending read.

And it looks like they now are, if the other thread is any indication.

Darn, I looked back through four pages for any mention of the books and somehow missed it, oh well.

link to "the other thread" that has a link to the ManyBooks book site.

Edit: Link removed.

Easy to miss, this was buried but when I saw your post I thought anyone subscribed to this one would want the update. Now we can let this one get reburied.
