Necromancer by William Gibson: Good, fast-paced read. Crazy some of the language and themes in this book regarding the internet and technology, while have been written in 80’s before the internet. Did you know he coined the term ‘cyberspace’? That’s why I love Sci-fi.
Do Andriods Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K. Dick: Read this one in a day and found it was the novel the film ‘Blade Runner’ was based on. Explored more deeply than the film about the human trait of empathy and really goves a new perspective to android related fiction (caught A.I. on TV after I read this and the similatites in theme were quite startiling).
Starting on the four novel 'Hyperion Cantos' now.
Funny that you should mention the Hyperion Cantos. I just finished Book 2, The Fall of Hyperion, yesterday. Good book, but I liked Hyperion better.
