In the early 1990s, Sterling began to expand his career beyond writing science-fiction. He began publishing journalism and other non-fiction and also began work on projects related to technology and subverting traditional notions of intellectual property, such as his Dead Media Project. He also developed a strong interest in industrial design, which he has channeled into his Viridian Design project.

Sterling continues to publish science-fiction novels. His most recent novel, The Zenith Angle, was published in April 2004 by Del Ray.
