Readings

Just finished the book I have been reading, Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age. I'm almost unsurprised that it was written 13 years ago. I picked up this book and the third book in his Baroque Cycle while I was in the States last month.

When I was younger, Piers Anthony and Isaac Asimov were my two absolute favourite sci-fi authors. Recently I have had the pleasure of discovering new favourites. After reading Diamond Age Neal Stephenson is definitely up there with Piers Anthony and Isaac Asimov. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out it is being made into a 6-part miniseries.

I'm still a little hesitant about beginning the final novel in the Baroque Cycle.

Apart from Neal Stephenson, other authors include Sean Williams, William Gibson, and Peter F. Hamilton. I am sure I have mentioned these before.

I have actually read a little of his books, unfortunately from memory I wasn't able to really get into them.
