    Interesting…what would the cyberpunk fans out there recommend for discovering Rucker’s work ? I love Sterling, Gibson et al., so I should probably read that guy.

      The Ware tetralogy is fantastic. Software, Wetware, Freeware, and Realware (not 100% on the order). Postsingular I really liked as well, and his Flurb online magazine is outstanding.

      Plus, he was a professor at my alma mater, SUNY Geneseo, sadly before my time but still, its great to discovery one of your favorite writers likely ate at the same pizza shop once upon a when.

      I’m kind of hot and cold on RR’s work — some I like, some I don’t — but I agree with William: the *-ware series is good, and a good place to start.

  2. I feel Rucker exceeds Gibson and Sterling in many areas. His writing contains more warmth, humor and spirituality. Highly recommended

    This sounds a lot like Buckaroo Banzai in the 4th dimension. I saw pre-release print at the Lawrence Hall of Science. The audience was mostly boys from families where one or both parents had Ph.ds or worse. It was hard to hear the dialog for the laughter.

    I strongly recommend White Light, if you ever desire to imagine a SciFi story set in the landscape of the transfinite sets.

    No thanks. I’d rather read the phone book.
