i guess i'm mostly interested in human-AI interactions(such as tanith lee's
_the silver metal lover_), which could conceivably, but not necessarily, be
told from the AI perspective. by "good books" i mean books that are both
scientifically plausible as well as "well written" in the traditional
sense(engaging plot, multi-dimensional characters, etc - also, i prefer
books with at least one sympathetic(if flawed) character in them, not just
all villains/cowards/etc!:) thanks!

take care,
