I read the first of this series years ago while road-tripping across the country (US). Sad to say i forgot to pay for the first one (sorry Mr. Rucker) but hopefully i made it up by immediately reading (all paid for) the rest of the series (the Ware Tetrology) followed by 'White Light', 'Postsingular', and 'Jim and the Actuals' and most recently 'The Hacker and the Ants'. Rudy is able to bring math, spirituality, sex, drugs and robotics all together in a way thats fresh, unique, absolutely crazy and yet it blends well and gets me thinking in different ways about this world we live in. One of the coolest things about Rudy Rucker is the fact that he's a Mathematician and a writer and can describe these complex mathematical abstracts in ways that non-math people (me) can grasp. This series is the best of his works possibly tying with 'White Light'
