Influence on Adam Warren
I'd like to add a reciprocal link between this page and either Adam Warren, Studio Proteus, or Dirty Pair pages, reflecting the obvious influence this novel had on Adam Warren's vision of the Dirty Pair universe. Any objections? --Sleet01 08:28, 16 August 2006 (UTC) Why make it reciprocal? Many writers have been influenced by Sterling. I'd put the link on Warren's end.
I added a section on Ideologies. I think Schismatrix is as much about ideologies as it is the main characters. Certainly it traces Abelard Lindsay's journey from Preservationist ideologue to pragmatic detentiste to post-humanist visionary. Many of the characters are can be taken as exemplars for different ideologies.

«At last I can formally tell a skeptical public that the title of SCHISMATRIX is pronounced "Skiz-mat'-rix." With a short a. Like "Schismatics," but with an R. Also, SCHISMATRIX is spelled without a "Z." I do hope this helps in future.» -- Bruce Sterling, Schismatics Plus, page viii.
N.B.: Sterling is an American, so he would pronounce "schism..." as starting with skɪm, not sɪzm. Email him if this seems doubtful. Sean M. Burke (talk) 12:51, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
I added a section on locations within the Schismatrix universe. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:02, 31 August 2009 (UTC) Just reread a bunch of schismatrix and checked my location listings
Why is this classed as Importance=low? It was nominated for the nebula award for best novel. It's a seminal text in the genre of "posthuman" fiction, and a very notable work of science fiction. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:07, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
