And I'm looking for novels to read. I just finished The Passage, which was OK at best (being a sort of Stephen King pop novel but without his level of quality). I also just read Rainbows End and A Fire Upon the Deep. Can anyone comment on the quality of the followup novel(s) to AFUtD? I'm going to read Point Counter Point right now but I like to keep scifi books in the rotation.

Just random shit I've read (or reread) in the past few months

Hull Zero Three, Greg Bear (cerebral Sci-fi)
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch (fantasy, the sequel blows FYI)
Ship of Fools by Richard Paul Russo (sci-fi/horror)
Armor by John Steakley (mil/sci-fi)
Rendevous with Rama, Arthur C Clarke (classic sci-fi first contact)

I finally got around to The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons too and loved it. People tell me he becomes crazy in later books but oh well. A lot of people like Aleister Crowley too but I couldn't get into his stuff.

Agreed on Locke Lamora, fuck I barely managed to finish the first chapter of the second book before throwing in into a wall. WHhich is a shame as the first book was rather interesting...

Simmons is fucking amazing, Hyperion, Fall of Hyperion, Enydmion and Rise of Endymion...Brilliant space opera sci-fi with elements of the fucking weird crazy philospohical stuff in there. I had to read nad reread some parts over and over again, and I still dont get a lot of stuff but Jesus that guy can write....
