Yudkowsky's recommendationEdit

Books of future shockEdit

The novel of nanotechnology, and a really, really well-written book besides. Imagine a society that is the product of Greek culture, Chinese culture, nanotechnology, and technologically augmented mental disciplines. Imagine you're such an amazingly good science-fiction author that you can write about it seamlessly, that the culture shown is perfectly integrated and perfectly executed and entirely plausible. That's the Logarchy, and in my entire reading experience, it is the most beautiful and compelling culture ever. If I had to choose one example of supreme professional craftsmanship in the art of creating futuristic societies, it would be the Logarchy.

Walter John Williams has written many excellent books, but this is indisputably the best. It deserves a Hugo, a Nebula, and possibly a Pulitzer.
