Iain M Banks, Peter F Hamilton and China Miéville

Morning, folks -

Hamilton's "Greg Mandel" trilogy, about a private eye in a near-future transformed by global warming, are also worth reading.

(Full disclosure: I was involved with publishing the original American editions. And once had a very nice dinner with Peter at a Worldcon in Glasgow.)

Peter was very nice both times I've met him - just wish I had more time to read more of his books!
