Excellent series. His other fiction books are great as well. Some of his nonfiction on Zen isn't quite as good.

Thomas Pynchon is great but I haven't read any of his for years. V and Gravity's Rainbow were both excellent.

Lathe of Heaven was a pretty good movie too. They sure didn't spend much money on SFX but if you liked the book it is worth a viewing.

Noisy, if you are a fan of Dyson, both son and father, I...

I can give a solid two thumbs up to Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson. Not as funny as Snowcrash but what is?
