Neal Stephenson Responds With Wit and Humor – Slashdot

Since youre Neal Stephenson, I suspect the answer could be something like “surveys of ancient Sumerian accounting systems”. If thats the case, please include a work of modern fiction or two in your list; something you think that a fan of your work might also enjoy. :

Neal:
Fiction I have lately read and enjoyed:

Set this House in Order by Matt RuffIlium by Dan Simmons

Iron Council by China Mieville

Perfect Circle by Sean Stewart

The I Love Bees alternate reality game

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susannah Clarke

The Fools Tale by Nicole Galland in galleys; soon to be published

Short story collections by Etgar Keret: The Bus Driver who Wanted to be God, and The Nimrod Flip-out.

Last time I checked, The Nimrod Flip-out was only available from an Australian publisher named Picador, but this should pose only the most minor of challenges to Slashdot readers. Keret is a young Israeli writer who has also done some work in film and graphic novels.

Nonfiction:

Skeletons on the Zahara by Dean KingThe Lincoln-Douglas Debates and Lincolns Cooper Union address

Battle Cry of Freedom by James McPherson
