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.

Excellent No-Charge Linux Books – Learn About Linux – For Beginners


Quote

Many no-charge e-books are, frankly, little more than spam bait, often published only to entice you to purchase a book from the same publisher. Poorly written, and with very little original content. Whereas the recommended texts below are definitely worth downloading. They’ll teach you the basics about Linux and so much more. They’re the ideal starting point for your Linux adventures. And you don’t have to divulge any personal information to get your hands on them.

Linux differs in so many ways to Windows. You might be well versed with Windows. But if you’re keen to explore and experiment with Linux, it’s worth investing some time with a good book about the subject. There are a huge range of books to learn about Linux. With many thousands of e-book and in-print books available, the choice can be baffling. And many paperback and hardback books are expensive. Step forward no-charge e-books designed for the beginner. Naturally, there are many other ways of learning about Linux, such as reading official documentation from the developers of Linux distributions, or from projects such as the respected Linux Documentation Project.

When Dark Horse Comics gave me the chance to create my own comic years ago–a very rare opportunity at the time–I jumped at the chance to build a vivid, sci-fi setting, and a gifted, troubled young bounty hunter plying her trade through a violent, complex world. Mercy St. Clair’s stories begin in the twisted streets of New Gelaph, but over time carry her farther and farther afield, until she becomes a central player in forces at play in the distant stars . My plan is to tell a life story that stretches out over a long series of action adventures where the character’s journeys are both inward and outward.

Mercy St.Clair has also returned to print, first through teaming up once again with Dark Horse Comics, and now by turning to Kickstarter to fund the further adventures of Mercy St. Clair in a series of all-new graphic novels at trekkerkickstarter.com.
