For those of you not familiar with him, Rudy Rucker, is one amazing writer… He is a professor at San Jose State University in the Math and Computer science department as well a writer. I would not consider his books cyberpunk though I have seen him lumped into that genre and I believe that is how I started reading him. In any case check out FLURB his ezine and you can get a sample of his work (and others). If you want to read a very trippy series check out his FREK series. They are quick reads and definitely they are unique to the world of science fiction.
