Assorted Slang & Terminology Volume 6 - Cyberpunk

According to Wikipedia, Cyberpunk is defined as “... a subgenre of science fiction in a futuristic setting that tends to focus on a "combination of lowlife and high tech" featuring advanced technological and scientific achievements, such as artificial intelligence and cybernetics, juxtaposed with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order.”

This volume of ASAT gives you a collection of terms and slang to help flesh out your worlds and stories within a genre, in this case, cyberpunk.


As well as various ‘punk terms, some computing and corporate terms are thrown in as well, to add to the immersion.

Disclaimer/Note from the Author - This pdf is not meant to be an “end-all” document, more a starting point for your own research. As such, mostly due to space and time restraints, some terms have been left out - if every bit of terminology was left in, this publication would be unwieldy, not useful and probably never finished!

Sample Entries
Anti-authoritarian
Promoting freedom of the individual as opposed to subjection to authority.

Brain Bucket
Slang term for a helmet, normally the one motorbike riders have on.

Cortex Bomb
Cybernetic implant designed to explode or otherwise destroy the brain of the person to whom it was implanted.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
