I'm putting together my summer reading list. Here's what I have so far:

Sex, Drugs, Einstein, & Elves Clifford Pickover
Great Mambo Chicken and the Transhuman Condition Ed Regis
The Age of Spiritual Machines Ray Kurzweil
The Unconquerable World Jonathan Schell
Neal Stephenson's "Baroque Cycle" (Quicksilver, The Confusion, The System of the World)
Gravity's Rainbow Thomas Pynchon

Most of those have been collecting dust on my "to read" list for quite a while, but I've promised myself not to neglect them any longer. I'm also open to any suggestions, should anyone care enough to offer any.

I'm currently working on:
Perdido Street Station China Mieville (This gets better every time I read it!)
Hyperspace Michio Kaku
The Golden Ratio Mario Livio


  • Good list!

    I've read "Hyperspace" (great ideas, disappointing prose), "Mambo Chicken" and
    "Spiritual Machines."

    Pickover sent me a copy of his new Mobius book, but I think I'll try "Elves" first.

    Have you read "The Fabric of Reality" by David Deutsch? Good stuff.
