It's odd how 'classics' of a genre sometimes aren't that good. At the time of writing they were groundbreaking, but these days so many people have stood on the shoulders of giants, that they origins are left in the dust. "Left Hand of Darkness" by LeGuin is another example similar to Shadow of the Torturer. At the time it was (apparently) a new concept and style radically breaking ground and tradition, but today there is nothing new about it, and many people have written much better.

Thanks for the recommendation - I've added Hounded to the ever growing list! If/When I get around to reading it I'll post a review.

'fox
Yeah... I really like Sawyer's concepts but he certainly does lack in the sublety department.
Have you read "We" by Yevgeny Zamyatin?
The first page of the book is exactly,exactly how modern CEOs talk. I was too taken aback and am struggling with the book that is I guess more haunting than Huxley and Orwell put together. It is also the first Modern Dystopia.
Oh, and I loved your review of Brave New World Revisited!
