Our attempt to create a "comlete, logical and useful" list of sub-genres is an ongoing process. Beginning in the early 1990s, some trends in fashion and music were also labeled as cyberpunk. The better stories don't usually depend upon such gee-whiz concepts, but develop the characters in depth, as done in literary fiction.
