The Grumpy Old Man

I tried out the What Should I Read Next? website, and put in Cryptonomicon, The Final Empire, Paladin of Souls, Anansi Boys, The Sharing Knife, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, and the Illuminatus! Trilogy. Here's what it recommended:

  • The Cobweb - Neal Stephenson, J. Frederick George
  • Interface - Neal Stephenson, Frederick George
  • Idoru - William Gibson
  • Time Out of Joint - Philip K. Dick
  • Inversions - Iain M. Banks
  • Broken Angels - Richard K. Morgan, Todd McLaren
  • Heavy Weather - Bruce Sterling
  • Cetaganda - Bujold Lois McMaster
  • The Anubis Gates - Tim Powers
  • A Deepness in the Sky - Vernor Vinge

In addition to those, my friends on ifMUD also recommended: Stephenson's Zodiac, Powers' The Drawing of the Dark, Egan's Schild's Ladder and Diaspora, Stross's Singularity Sky, Zindell's Neverness and A Requiem for Homo Sapiens, and Reynolds' Revelation Space

Thank you all! I'm looking forward to reading these.
