I started reading sci-fi this year! Still on my reading list: Neuromancer (but hasn’t that already been discussed?) and The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi. Just read Thirteen by Richard K Morgan, which was phenomenal. Neither of those two are short though...

ooo my partner just gave me The Windup Girl to read. Soon as I finish Red Seas Under Red Skies I'm tucking into it.

Regardless, those are both great books.

And if you liked Thirteen, check out the Takashi Kovacs series, beginning with Altered Carbon (by the same author).

Neuromancer has been thrown around IIRC, but it hasn't been the topic for a sci-fi club yet.

I got Neuromancer a couple of months back after a friend recommended it. Couldn't read it beyond the first few pages, a little tough for me since I'm a non-native speaker but your post, in some mystic way, encouraged me to pick it up again tonight.
