Nanopunk refers to an emerging subgenre of science fiction still very much in its infancy in comparison to its ancestor-genre cyberpunk   and some of its other derivatives . 
The genus is particularly similar to biopunk ,  but describes a world where nanites are widely used and nanotechnologies predominate the forces in society.
Currently, the subject is mainly concerned with the psychological, psychological  and especially societal impact of nanotechnology, rather than aspects of the technology which is still in its infancy. Unlike the cyberpunk qui peut être distinguished by a gritty and low-life character yet Technologically advanced, nanopunk can-have a darker dystopian character That might examine potential Risks by nanotechnology as well a more optimistic outlook That might EMPHASIZE potential uses of nanotechnology .  
- Kathleen Ann Goonan ( Queen City Jazz – 1997) and Linda Nagata were some of the earliest writers to feature nanotech as the primary element in their work. 
- Another famous example of this genre is Neal Stephenson ‘s The Diamond Age .  Some novels of Stanislaw Lem , Including Weapon System of the Twenty First Century or The Upside-down evolution , The Invincible and Peace on Earth as well as Greg Bear ‘s Blood Music Could aussi be regarded Juventa of nanopunk.
- Another example is the Michael Crichton novel Micro (2011). More recently, Nathan McGrath’s Nanopunk (2013) is set in an icebound near-future where almost half of the world’s population has been wiped out. Alister, a child when “The Big Freeze” began to be a teenager in a society slowly finding its feet. Unaware of his nano-infection he has been a cyber-activist activist . Their hacking attracts the attention of Secret Services and a ruthless private military corporation and their search becomes a deadly race for survival.
- Linda Nagata’s Tech Heaven (1995) is a futuristic thriller about Katie, a woman whose husband is suffering from a crash. Instead of dying, he gets his body cryogenically preserved so that he can be reawakened when med-tech is advanced enough to heal him. The problem is that it’s up to you. 
- Alastair Reynolds ‘ Chasm City could also be considered nanopunk.
