    At leas there's plenty of places the story can go, no time or plot constraints, or shit ideas you've Kloosed yourself into.

    No doubt about that, it's one thing to be a machine that can possibly exist "forever" it's another that it can replicate itself continuously as well.



    About 2/3 through the second book and it has been more entertaining, at this rate will be likely checking out the third book.

    I can't recommend Moon is a Harsh Mistress enough. Same for Starship Troopers, which I really need to re-read.

    Stranger in a Strange Land is great, if you like off beat sci-fi. I really need to read some of his less known works that have been on my list for a while. I tried reading Job but couldn't get into it.

    FYI, I wasn't all that fond of Double Star or Citizen of the Galaxy. DS won a Hugo, I understand why, but it's dated now.

    I'm also curious about Isaac Asimov. My mom read both him and Heinlein and always recommend them.
