Morning, lads.

It's my birthday coming up and there's very little I actually want so I thought I'd primarily ask for books (I'm >>/job/11278), although I'm not entirely sure which ones to ask for so I'd be grateful for recommendations please, lads.

Authors I like include, but are not limited to, Bill Bryson, Hunter S Thompson, Philip Pullman, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Iain Banks, Jon Ronson, Philip K Dick, John Lanchester, George Orwell, Olaf Stapledon, Kurt Vonnegut, Joseph Heller, Aldous Huxley, etc. That sort of thing.

Thanks, lads.

You'd probably like 'We' by Yevgeny Zamyatin. I've never read it but it is very much in that dystopia style, and I've heard good things.

You could try Paolo Bacigalupi, Hannu Rajaniemi or Vurt. Stanislaw Lem?
'We' isn't a terribly exciting book if you've already read 1984 and BNW, it's more of the same (although it was written first).

Seconding Vurt.

Other ones from here I can remember going through are the Illuminatus! trilogy and possibly also the Red Mars series.
