What techniques do writers use to keep the pacing going through multiple volumes?

Panelists:Catherine Asaro (M), Charles E. Gannon, Carolyn Ives Gilman, John G. Hemry
What are the ways in which space opera can be combined with the future computers (and style) of cyberpunk? What would this look like? What authors have come closest to doing this?
