Subgenre Bionic Science Fiction


Bionics is a hybridized compound of Biology ad electronics. The word electron was first coined in in 1891 by Irish physicist G. J. Stoney. Bio comes from the Greek root word for Life. Ology comes from Logos the Word or to be more precise the study of something. So take life and technology and weave them together into a story and the book takes on a life of its own!

Since the late 1800s, technology has advanced and added more words to this genre biorobotics, transformers, cyborgs, daleks, cybermen and wetware (living biological technology like sentient artificial intelligence think Data from Star Trek Next Generation). Some publishers also toss genetic engineering into this subgenre. In addition to bionic books are TV series, movies, songs, and video games, not to mention the occasional TARDIS (because there is a bio-mass as her heart.) And sound effects. Gotta love the sound effects.

Here is a list of Bionic Science Fiction books. Prices strangely enough range from free Kindles to $98 paperbacks! I pulled from non-fiction, e-books, trade paperbacks, traditional paperbacks, hardcovers, and audio books for your enjoyment:
