Does anyone have any suggestions? I've read Stephenson and Gibson and I love them, but I was wondering if there were any cyberpunky novels I should get my hands on besides the big names? Thanks!!

I loved Vurt.  I think it would qualify as cyberpunk.  Warning though, it's disturbing reading (sex, etc).

Trouble and Her Friends by Melissa Scott: http://www.paperbackswap.com/Trouble-Friends-Melissa-Scott/book/0812522133/

 

i would also suggest anything in the novels set in the Shadowrun game universe.

Walter Jon William's Hardwired is excellent as is Voice in the Whirlwind. Also a great classic is Islands in the Net by Bruce Sterling, and When Gravity Fails and the rest of that trilogy by Effinger.
