@yogthos I'll check it out! Have you ever read any Greg Egan? He used to be a physicist I think and does awesome hard sci fi.

Permutation City is a good place to start, but I also really enjoyed the more recent Zendegi. But yeah, lots of great ones.

Also always enjoyed a lot of Neal Stephenson for that reason. lol, dude will nerd the fuck out about his subject matter

@slackz Egan is fantastic, I really enjoyed Permutation City. Can recommend Diaspora and Schild's Ladder as well.

Just stumbled on this thread and read the Permutation City excerpt. Nice recommendation, I'll be reading this.

If you haven't heard of Eubanks "Life Artificial", I think you might like it too. It has a similar theme and level of "hardness" of the sci-fi and I like the writing style. It can be downloaded for free from the author's page: lifeartificial.com/
(I've written a review on Goodreads. I think it is under-marketed.)
