About meWalking on these streets, until the night falls, my life feels to me like the life they have. By day they're full of meaningless activity; by night they're full of a meaningless lack of it. By day I am nothing, and by night I am I. There is no difference between me and these streets, save they being streets and I a soul, which perhaps is irrelevant when we consider the essence of things. There is an equal, abstract destiny for men and for things; both have an equally indifferent designation in the algebra of the world's mystery. --Pessoa

About my libraryI wish I owned all these books; instead I use this to document (almost) all the books I've read. Since the inception of collections, I'm working on tossing the large amount of youth serial fiction I read into a convenient bin for completeness' sake, but so it doesn't wreck my recommendations and connections.

Enrique - I'm reading The Unincorporated Man. I'm on about page 150 and definitely liking it so far. Thanks for the recommendation!
Thanks for the stuff on Margaret W., Enrique. It's good to get specific recommendations with a 150-book (!) series.
I have been getting more into fantasy lately, actually. Most of my sci-fi is stuff I got years ago; the only exception I can think of is Stross.

Po-Mo = post-modernism. I guess I think of this rather nebulous concept as involving, among other things, an interest in language and consensus reality. Zeitgeist is all about that stuff beneath the surface (and sometimes on the surface, too).
Steal Beach, Quarantine, and Zeitgeist
Hmmm...

Steel Beach is IMHO the best all-around novel of those. It has an intersting world, intersting plot, and good emotional punch.

Quarantine has a fascinating premise and plot. I have some issues (minor) with the way the ideas were realized. All in all, quite good, though, IMHO.

Zeitgeist is the most low-key of the three, plot-wise. It gets into some epistemological issues in a fun way. Sterling plays around with people doing “impossible” things, and never takes himself too seriously.

So here’s my recommendation: I’d prioritize Steel Beach. Between the other two, Quarantine would be better if you’d enjoy novel speculation grounded firmly in hard physics.

Zeitgeist would be #2 if you want to see an amusing riff on some Po-Mo ideas about language and knowledge.

I see you have one Margaret Weiss as one of your favorite authors. I don’t think I’ve heard of her. What’s her stuff like?
Hey, Enrique, awesome! I love L.O.L.L. and in fact I just bought the sequel a day or two ago. I'll take some more time to think about recs for you.
