“Do you still consider yourself a punk?” Thurston Moore, former lead singer of Sonic Youth was asked in the documentary film, 1991: The Year Punk Broke.

“I consider myself more fucked up than I ever could imagine myself being,” was Moore’s response.

Psychopunk is a short anthology focusing primarily on the postmodern *punk genres that emerged following the popularity of William Gibson and other authors in the 1980s and 1990s; a gathering of themes and tales that have blossomed within the distinct genres in evidence since the publication of Gibson’s Neuromancer and Otomo’s Akira – cyberpunk, steampunk, sandalpunk, dieselpunk etc. – a multide of settings to explore the human condition.

Featuring stories by acclaimed authors Mark Bousquet and Josh Reynolds, Psychopomp regular contributors Lisa Knight and Martin David Edwards, Australian Horror Writers’ Association community leader, Cameron Trost, as well as icons of the old shared universe scene Alex Cook, Jericho Vilar, Jason S. Kenney, C.S. Roberts and H.H. Neville, and with a pedigree born of photocopied fanzines, Psychopunk is a collection for the fading summer and the waning warmth of Western civilisation.

The future, the past, and everything in between; Psychopunk is a collection of stories relating to the human spirit at odds with its surroundings.
