Cryptonomicon and Snow Crash by Neil Stephenson
his cool geekyness is only let down by his seeming inability to write a convincing female character
Neuromancer by William Gibson
I really like this one
Digital Fortress by Dan Brown
In a moment of weakness i actually entertained the idea i may at some point read the da vinci code. After reading this i think ill give it a miss... Its pretty bad.
I kinda like Ben Bova's stuff...
Im also a fan or pretty much anything written by Terry Pratchett.
Dont let me geek out about harry potter/His Dark Materials
Sorry if im lowering the tone
Im my "going to read" pile:
Consider Plebas and The Player of games by Iain M. Banks
The Baroque Cycle by Neil Stephenson (Its a trillogy)
Probably some more William Gibson stuff
any suggestions? (hint: cyber/cypherpunk)
