Rudy Rucker is a cyberpunk writer with a checkered past. Ware Tetralogy, Complete Stories, and Juicy Ghosts. On X/Twitter for now, edging onto Bluesky.
While we're at it, here's some Japanese covers, for Soft, Wet, and Freeware, also for Hollow Earth. Please remind me again of this wonderful artist's name. Also I'll throw in a link for the Wares. rudyrucker.com/wares/ pic.twitter.com/01dZdmK1KI2023-09-29 02:17:20
@rudytheelder The illustrator/comic artist is Eiji Yokoyama (横山えいじ). He has also drawn covers of many other Japanese SF novels. I think you can contact him via Hayakawa. Your novels finally kicked me into the software engineering universe/swamp. Thank you so much for those wonderful work.2023-09-29 07:45:52
@oume Glad you like my work! I'm curious what Eiji ooks like. Hard for me to cruise the Japanese web. I found this, which might be a portrait of him, or it might be an ad for a suit. images.app.goo.gl/AbZKPzXjJ7913v…2023-09-29 08:24:16
@rudytheelder I just remembered. I read your books by this translated version when they were published in Japan. Very cool.2023-09-29 10:57:45
@rudytheelder Wow I had them exactly in that cover design… maybe 25-30 years ago?2023-09-29 07:43:59
@oume @shiozaway Oume-san, please ask Shiozawa-san to pass the word to Yokoyama-san that he is a genius, and I am grateful to have had his magnificent covers on my books. Here are four more. Hacker and the Ants, White Light, Sex Sphere, and Spacetime Donuts. pic.twitter.com/Aa1yqCAKK62023-09-29 13:48:29
