Clifford Pickover is an incredibly smart and wildly imaginative writer and computer graphics wizard. He's written a bunch of non-fiction books about math and graphics, and now he has a series of four science fiction books. I am looking forward to reading them, because I really enjoyed a story he wrote for bOING bOING (print edition) in the mid-90s, called "There Will Be Soft Cattle."Link Discuss
