Top 20 geek novels

The Guardian lists the top 20 geek novels. I’ve read all four:

  • Watchmen — Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons
  • Stranger in a Strange Land — Robert Heinlein
  • The Illuminatus! Trilogy — Robert Shea & Robert Anton Wilson
  • Trouble with Lichen - John Wyndham

Can’t say I’ve read all of Brave New World either.

Of the rest, I find it nice to see Bank’s Consider Phlebas on the list, although of course Use of Weapons is much better.
