Many notable writers like Phillip K. Dick, Roger Zelazny, William Gibsons, J. G. Ballard were the ones who established cyberpunk literature. These cyberpunk authors portrayed the cyberpunk culture and society and the aesthetic being linked with technology, science, and many gothic elements in that fictional world.
