Rudy Rucker

22 March 1946 -

Rudy Rucker is a writer and a mathematician who worked for twenty years as a Silicon Valley computer science professor, and published a number of software packages.

Rucker is regarded as contemporary master of science-fiction, and received the Philip K. Dick award twice. His thirty published books include both novels and non-fiction books on the fourth dimension, infinity, and the meaning of computation.

A founder of the cyberpunk school of science-fiction, Rucker also writes SF in a realistic style known as transrealism. His 2006 Mathematicians in Love was an example of a transreal novel. His early cyberpunk four-book series was republished in 2010 as The Ware Tetralogy.

Rucker’s 2007 novel, Postsingular was something of a return to the cyberpunk style, as was the 2009 sequel, Hylozoic, in which every object on Earth comes to life. Rucker’s autobiography, , appeared in 2011. Recent novels include Jim and the Flims, Turing & Burroughs, and The Big Aha.
