I mean, it's a great list, but I still don't know if they're worth buying.
To save loads of cash, you could always do like Golem and borrow them at your public library... That is, IF you have a good one in your area... :roll: (Preaching for my church, as I'm a librarian, you see?)
BTW, in my turf, a local author named Alain Bergeron took 15 years to write "Phaos", which is considered the first cyberpunk novel "made in Quebec". It just got published and already won an award. It is set in 2086, close enough to the setting books being designed by Stratos and Kiln... As usual, mega-corporations has pushed the governments to bankruptcy. The moon has been colonized, but famine looms as food supplies geets harder to find. The MIT (Moon Institute of Technology) developped a super software dubbed "Phaos" which should solve the food problem. Thor Corp is about to buy it to reign supreme, but of course a traitor steals the program. A race follows as Synbad (a rival corp) and Thor tries to recapture it. Of course there's much more to it, but I'll have to read it. Also, I don't want to bore anybody, so I'll stop.
Anyway, I'm off to read. In librarianship studies, we have a saying : So many books, so little time. :twisted:
