Jason’s summer reading recommendations

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

For my fiction reading this summer, I’ve been focusing mostly on near-future science fiction, especially stories that explore the logical conclusions to current trends. Here are two writers you should be reading:

Daniel Suarez: Daemon and Freedom TM are a two-part story. Kill Decision was just released last week, and I devoured it over the course of about 18 hours last weekend. The lawn suffered.

William Hertling: Avogadro Corp and A.I. Apocalypse are individual stories in the same universe. What would happen if Google became Skynet?

If you’re more interested in non-fiction, Ray Kurzweil‘s The Singularity is Near is a utopian look at the future, while Joel Garreau‘s Radical Evolution is much more balanced and a lot less cult-like.

Happy reading!
