TBOTLS is among other things a retrospective of SF.

Here, we see Cyberpunk being treated.

The main idea of Cyberpunk was to take "cyberspace" and fuse it with the
Spirit world.  Cyberspace becomes the place where the Gods live, where you
dream, where you may go after death.   It is this (utterly uncientific) idea
that gave Gibson's first novels their tremndous punch.

Wolfe is nodding to this, among other things.
