I like the hard-core technology based sci-fi - stuff that is based on current best science knowledge extrapolated into the future. Still have a fondness for "first contact" stories. I don't like the current trend to put all fantasy into the sci-fi genre and also don't like the the bizzarro sci-fi stuff that seems like a drug-induced dream.
We have been living out of the US for 2 years, so haven't had access to much in that time. Got some recommendations for books by Neal Stephenson(sp?) that I will start on after we get back to the US in December. Any other recommendations?
