I think you can find some definite mysticism and mythology in the cyberpunk of William Gibson, at the very least.


The market doesn't seem to be there, which is sad. SF&F publishers are looking in the wrong direction. I think many of the readers of the "Left Behind" series are a ready-made market for spiritual SF.

An aside to the above commenter: the mysticism you'll find in Gibson's work is very dry and crumbly, and he bristles at anyone who asks if someone like Phil Dick is an influence.
