John Kilian Houston Brunner war ein britischer Science-Fiction-Autor.

Seine ersten Romane werden der konventionellen Space Opera zugerechnet, bald jedoch begann er, einen eigenen Romanstil zu entwickeln. Sein 1968 erschienener Roman Morgenwelt wurde 1969 mit dem Hugo Award als bester Science-Fiction-Roman ausgezeichnet und gilt heute als einer der Klassiker des Genres, ebenso wie Schafe blicken auf . Mit seinem Roman „Der Schockwellenreiter“, gilt er als der Schöpfer des Konzeptes des Computerwurms.

John Brunner wird häufig den Cyberpunk-Autoren zugerechnet, obwohl er den Großteil seines Werkes bereits vor der Phase des Cyberpunk in den 1980er Jahren publizierte.

Seine Pseudonyme waren K. H. Brunner, Gill Hunt, John Loxmith, Trevor Staines und Keith Woodcott.

Zitate John Kilian Houston Brunner

„Wenn Sie wissen wollen, was der Guillotine kurz vorausgeht, dann halten Sie Ausschau nach dem offensichtlichsten aller Symptome: dem Extremismus. […] Legt man also den Maßstab des Extremismus an, ergibt sich im Effekt die Schlußfolgerung, daß wahrscheinlich das menschliche Geschlecht insgesamt nicht lange überdauern kann.“

—  John Kilian Houston Brunner, buch Morgenwelt

Morgenwelt. Deutsche Übersetzung von Horst Pukallus, München 1980, ISBN 3-453-30653-8, S. 195/197)
Original englisch: "If you want to know what's shortly due for the guillotine look for the most obvious of all symptoms: extremism. […] In effect, applying the yardstick of extremism leads one to conclude that the human species itself is unlikely to last very long." - Stand On Zanzibar. Del Rey, 1987. p. 198, 200

„UNMÖGLICH Bedeutet 1. Paßt mir nicht, und sollte es doch dazu kommen, werde ich dagegen sein. 2. Ich will in Ruhe gelassen werden. 3. Gott will in Ruhe gelassen werden. Bedeutung 3 hat vielleicht einen Sinn, aber die anderen Bedeutungen sind 101%iger Walmist“

context (12) "The Sociological Counterpart of Cheyne-Stokes Respiration" <!-- [Italics in source] -->
Stand on Zanzibar (1968)
Kontext: If you want to know what's shortly due for the guillotine look for the most obvious of all symptoms: extremism. It is an almost infallible sign — a kind of death-rattle — when a human institution is forced by its members into stressing those and only those factors which are identificatory, at the expense of others which it necessarily shares with competing institutions because human beings belong to all of them.

„When the Everywhere couple crack a joke
It's laughed at by all right-thinking folk.
When the Everywhere couple adopt a pose
It's the with-it view as everyone knows.“

—  John Brunner, buch Morgenwelt

context (16) "Mr. & Mrs. Everywhere: Calypso (stanzas 2, 5, and 7) <!-- [Italics in source] -->
Stand on Zanzibar (1968)
Kontext: Watching their sets in a kind of trance
were people in Mexico, people in France.
They don't chase Jones but the dreams are the same —
Mr. and Mrs. Everywhere, that's the right name!
Herr und Frau Uberall or les Partout,
A gadget on the set makes them look like you. When the Everywhere couple crack a joke
It's laughed at by all right-thinking folk.
When the Everywhere couple adopt a pose
It's the with-it view as everyone knows.
It may be a rumor or it may be true
But a gadget on the set has it said by you! "What do you think about Yatakang?"
"I think the same as the Everywhere gang."
"What do you think of Beninia then?"
"The Everywheres will tell me but I don't know when."
Whatever my country and whatever my name
A gadget on the set makes me think the same.

„Whatever my country and whatever my name
A gadget on the set makes me think the same.“

„Governments don’t change things,” she said. “Only time does that.“

continuity (24) “This Scene Not Shifted”
Stand on Zanzibar (1968)

„Very well, the starting point would be that claim of Professor Quarrey’s, which had been in the news at the beginning of the year, that the country’s greatest export was noxious gas. And who would like to stir up the fuss again? Obviously, the Canadians, cramped into a narrow band to the north of their more powerful neighbors, growing daily angrier about the dirt that drifted to them on the wind, spoiling crops, causing chest diseases and soiling laundry hung out to dry. So she’d called the magazine Hemisphere in Toronto, and the editor had immediately offered ten thousand dollars for three articles.
Very conscious that all calls out of the country were apt to be monitored, she’d put the proposition to him in highly general terms: the risk of the Baltic going the same way as the Mediterranean, the danger of further dust-bowl like the Mekong Desert, the effects of bringing about climactic change. That was back in the news—the Russians had revised their plan to reverse the Yenisei and Ob. Moreover, there was the Danube problem, worse than the Rhine had ever been, and Welsh nationalists were sabotaging pipelines meant to carry “their” water into England, and the border war in West Pakistan had been dragging on so long most people seemed to have forgotten that it concerned a river.
And so on.
Almost as soon as she started digging, though, she thought she might never be able to stop. It was out of the question to cover the entire planet. Her pledged total of twelve thousand words would be exhausted by North American material alone.“
