A founder of the cyberpunk school of science-fiction, Rucker also writes SF in a realistic style known as transrealism. In his latest transreal novel, Mathematicians In Love, two Berkeley grad students woo the same woman and open a gateway to alternate worlds. Two other recent books are his story anthology, Mad Professor, and a reprint of his historical SF novel, The Hollow Earth, which stars Edgar Allan Poe.
Rucker is currently working on a new series of cyberpunk novels. He has finished the first, Postsingular, nanotechnology augments human mental powers and the heroes prevent Earth from becoming a cloud of nanomachines. He’s currently writing the second novel in the series, Hylozoic, in which every object on Earth comes to life and the planet is menaced by alien realtors.
