Most kinds. Space Opera to Cyberpunk to Singularity Discussion.

space opera to cpunk to...

The only Singularity topic I know anything is from Vernor Vinge...way back. He had a paper I liked quite a lot about hte acceleration of tech, and the human/computer interfaces. It tied in / ties in with my interest in cpunk and post-cyberpunk novels. Have you read any Morgan?

It seems these days I've less time to read - and "space opera" falls lower on my list - as close as I'm getting right now might be Elizabeth Bear's Trilogy.

Re: space opera to cpunk to...

Yeah, Vinge is where the concept comes from. Most thirdwave cyberpunk is also kind of a singularity novel. At least, if it's any good.

Who's Morgan?

space opera to cpunk to... Richard Morgan

Richard Morgan?
If you haven't read any of his work, I would suggest you drop whatever you are doing and run-don't-walk to the nearest big bookstore and aquire, "Altered Carbon". I picked it up in 2002 - and I hope you can still get copies. It is probably the best post-cyberpunk novel I've read in the last 10 years. He's now got 3 in the series and one standalone novel, "Market Forces". Another due out next year. The language is beautifully constructed with that edge and integration so few of the newer cyberpunk novels have achieved. It created the same kind of excitement in my brain as I got when I first read Gibson and the first time I heard Skinny Puppy.

fireworks. Fantastic book.

Re: space opera to cpunk to... Richard Morgan

Oh, yeah. I've read all of his stuff. The Kovacs novels were great, although 'Market Forces' was a little stupid in it's construction. Read Charles Stross (accelerando, glasshouse) for some really good stuff, too. It's not quite as dark, but..
