Nested Scrolls: The Autobiography of Rudolf von Bitter Rucker (TPB) - TILBUD (så længe lager haves, der tages forbehold for udsolgte varer) (Rucker, Rudy)
The honest and intellectually fierce autobiography of one of the most acclaimed voices in science fiction Nested Scrolls reveals the true-life adventures of Rudolf von Bitter “Rudy” Rucker—mathematician, transrealist author, punk rocker, and computer hacker. It begins with a young boy growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, the son of a businessman father who becomes a clergyman, and a mother descended from the philosopher Hegel. His career goals? To explore infinity, popularize the fourth dimension, seek the gnarl, become a beatnik writer, and father a family. All the while Rudy is reading science fiction and beat poetry, and beginning to write some pretty strange fiction of his own—a blend of Philip K. Dick and hard SF that qualifies him as part of the original circle of writers in the early 1980s that includes Bruce Sterling, William Gibson, John Shirley, and Lewis Shiner, who were the founders of cyberpunk. At one level, Rucker’s genial and unfettered memoir brings us a firsthand account of how he and his contemporaries ushered in our postmodern world. At another, this is the wry and moving tale of a man making his way from one turbulent century to the next.

Amerikansk forfatter, matematiker og computerprogrammør og en af de mere specielle. Rucker er nok en af bagmændene bag hele Cyberpunk genren. Specielt hans trilogi "Software", "Wetware" og "Freeware" har været med til at placere ham I den gruppe. Rucker har skrevet SF siden midten af 60'erne og skriver også bøger om matematik.
