    Both Vinge and Egan are well worth the bother. Not tried to other guy, but I'll look out for him.

    I especially liked the bit in PC at the start where the birth occurs. And both PC and AR are simillar in that they start fairly small but get mad crazy aspirations of cosmic scope. Vinge and Egan manage to pull this off quite well, but I do sometimes wonder if they might not have been better stopping before the scale got inflated quite so far.

    • Much of the rest of Ken Grimwood's stuff is uneven, I'm told. But his Replay is a keeper.

      BTW, I heard about both Vinge [] (VINN-jee) and Egan from Dominus. He's a supahstar.

      • wow, I thought I was the only person who read Replay. I always wondered why someone didn't make a movie of it, it's great material.
      • I've only read two of Grimwood's books. Replay I loved, and I thought Into the Deep was absolutely terrible.
