D.O.D.O, The Big U, and REAMDE are the only Stephenson books I haven't read sadly. I hope to get to REAMDE later this year, I kinda had a big backlist of books from college I was given but never had time to read. I finished Seveneves about a month, even though my parents gave it to me sophomore year lol.

This year I also spent some time reading Richard Morgan (Kovacs series), Kim Stanley Robinson (2312, Aurora and New York 2140) and Ursula Le Guin (Left Hand of Darkness and The Dispossessed). All I can say, is I wish Stephenson and Robinson would collaborate on a story together.

Guns and Ammo is a good mag too. Pick yourself up a copy.
