Greg Egan's SF scenarios
are about as complex and mind-boggling as anything Stephen Hawking would
come up with. His stuff earns the Capital S in SF.
I just finished "Distress": quite nice, relatively accessible.
"Diaspora" was an extremely weird tale, as was "Quarantine". So far, my
personal favourite among his books is "Permutation City". You can tell
that he's a programmer, but he must be smoking Good Stuff at times...

Some articles about an Auckland police woman who's been
moonlighting as a prostitute. (Who will not lose her job or anything:
prostitution is legal in NZ.)
Pretty weird stuff.

Nothing ever changes, it seems.
I miss my dummy.
