A few recommendations:
Quicksilver - Neal Stephenson (Part I of the Baroque Cycle. Not Cryptonomicon, but brilliant nonetheless!)
The Sandman Book Of Dreams - Edited by Neil Gaiman (Awesome!)
Hyperion - Dan Simmons (Neat!)
Reading/Re-reading at present:
Ulysses - James Joyce (slow progress here because it makes me itch for a different life with every page, a very different reaction from when I read it first!)
Olympos - Dan Simmons (part 2 of Illium, a spin on the Illiad/Odyssey, very interesting).
Will take me some time and a lot of courage before I can start reviewing books.
