There were some surprising synergies between the three of us and the books we wanted to talk about - historical points of significant change, virtual reality and plugging into a system, and books about books!
Bryan brought three books along for discussion:
- The Proteus Paradox by Nick Yee
- Pivotal Decades: The United States, 1900-1920 by John Milton Cooper Jr.
- Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon
- The Zimmerman Telegram by Barbara W. Tuchman
- Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections and Other Obsessions by Guillermo del Toro
- What Makes This Book So Great by Jo Walton
- Her Smoke Rose Up Forever by James Tiptree, Jr.
- The Pale King by David Foster Wallace
- The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby (see also "Stuff I've Been Reading" on The Believer)
