Paul Di Filippo’s Ribofunk
Biopunk is an exciting subgenre of sci-fi based around the ideas of genetic modification, and the overall idea of humans dabbling in ares nature where they probably shouldn’t. Paul Di Filippo’s short story collection Ribofunk is one of the earliest and most important works of the genre, which features tales surrounding all matter of weird body mods and humans trying to play god. Biopunk is essentially the natural extension of the kind of story H.G. Wells was telling with The Island of Dr. Moreau, and is definitely something that you need to read if you want to keep your finger on the pulse of the literary sci-fi world!
