12 fiction books for Linux and open source fans



Quote

For this book list, I reached out to our writer community to ask which fiction books they would recommend to their peers. What I love about this question and the answers that follow is this list gives us a deeper look into their personalities. Fiction favorites are unlike non-fiction recommendations in that your technical skills and interests may have an influence on what you like to read read, but it's much more about your personality and life experiences that draw you to pick out, and love, a particular fiction book.
These people are your people. I hope you find something interesting to add to your reading list.

Looks like some interesting books on the list. I have read one of the books way back in the 90's. We gave  a copy to our Tai Chi master along with several jars of honey for his birthday one year. :hysterical:

I haven't read any of them. However, I did try to read the Neal Stephenson one and the Daniel Suarez one; couldn't get too far into either one, though.
