CYBER NOODLE SOUP ran for 14 issues between 1995 and 2000. It was an occasional zine typically about two pages per issue and concerned with cyberpunk in general. There was a lot of William Gibson and Paul Di Filippo within its fourteen issues. Originally mailed a small number of friends, Jean Heriot offered to put it up on her homepage and so became more widely available. At that point it became my first e-zine, somewhat late in the day considering its subject matter. Jerry Denny (aka “jael”) began contributing in later issues and eventually wrote most of the material. Issue #15, produced in November 2011, was originally called “Cyberpunk News” and was a one-shot sent to a few friends. Since the subject matter is similar to my now-defunct old e-zine I thought I’d slap the Cyber Noodle Soup label on it and call it #15.
INTERFERENCE ON THE BRAIN SCREEN began sometime in the early 1990s but only issues 6 and 7 survive. The first couple of issues were actually produced on a typewriter – like Neuromancer – and so never had a digital life. Issue 6 was the last to be distributed in April 2003. Number 7 (April 2005) was completed but never mailed. Here, too, Jerry Denny contributed much original material making my job a whole lot easier. The texts for issues 6 and 7 are intact but not the original illustrations. For these efanzines versions I grabbed a couple of contemporary pictures just to break up the monotony of all the text.
A CYBERPUNK TIMELINE appeared in bits and pieces in both Cyber Noodle Soup and Interference on the Brain Screen. It floats around the Internet in various configurations to this day. There is no official version as such though I suppose you can call this the original version. I stopped in 2000. Anyone can make whatever use of it for any purpose they wish.
