    Magepunk and WTF is it?

    I ran into a few threads over on NaNo dealing with the sub-genre of fantasy known as mage-punk. And I use "known" only in the widest of sense. I certainly never knew about it. From what I can gather, it's cyberpunk with mages, or maybe a cross between cyberpunk and urban fantasy. I can't think of a single book that really falls into this category, although someone on NaNo claimed Simon R. Green's "Nightside" series as a citation.

    So, I was wondering, has anyone around here heard of this "sub-genre", and maybe they could explain what the hell it is to me? Something in the minds of internet linked fandumb, maybe?
