The Amy Fisher Story by Amy Fisher

Excellent, excellent, novel. It's nice to hear the story from the source.

The Diamond Age or A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson

A must read for any scifi aficionado who made the mistake of reading Prey without having read The Diamond Age first. This is the same author of Snow Crash, Zodiac, Crytonomicon, and The Baroque Age series of fictional first person accounts of real history.

Counting Heads by David Marusek

Nice first scifi novel by David Marusek.  Covers all the bases of the near future. Even an unexpected one of what happens to the little people when the greedy become all powerful resource hogs whose only enemies are other powerful entities working at cross purposes.

The Skinner by Neal Asher

Excellent scifi that covers an issue that is only now being imagined in the collective unconscious. Just because you can live forever doesn't necessarily mean you will want to or have the will to after a couple of centuries of life kicking you around. Covers many bases and is an excellent follow up to his first scifi novel.
