Parallel to the emergence of cyberpunk in the USA there was a determined change in sf in the United Kingdom thanks primarily to David Pringle, editor of INTERZONE. This had started as a more literary sf magazine influenced by the New Wave of the 1960s but Pringle called for more hard-edged, radical technical science fiction and this saw the emergence of a new generation of writers including Stephen Baxter, Alastair Reynolds, Greg Egan, Geoff Ryman and Eric Brown. The success of INTERZONE saw a revival in sf magazines in Britain ranging from the extremist BACK BROWN RECLUSE to the more traditional DREAM.
