Thanks for the recommendation of Jerle Shannara Triology. Will add it to my list.
I have seen this MSNBC show. If my memory serves me correct, it had this chick Soledad O'brien (I'm not sure though, this was years ago). But anyways she was cool and she knew how to run a tech program. Cliff used appear there with messed up hair and explain about vintage machines. (was this in 90s?)
Crichton, that's one author I can say somthing about. I'm sure you must've read most of everything he has written. Here are my favourites in order:
Andromeda Strain, Time Line, 13th Warrior
Rising Sun, Air Frame
I have not read Terminal Man yet. Saving it late because I think it’ll be one of the last of Crichton’s for me.
Btw, If you are a William Gibson / Bruce Sterling fan, Keep AWAY from Difference Engine. It’s disaster and makes me wonder how could both of them write such a book.
Nice talking to you.
Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage;
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above
Enjoy such liberty. - Richard Lovelace
