A Meeting at Corvallis - S.M. Stirling What a series. Sometime during book two (The Protector's War) I became totally obsessed. The writing is a bit sloppy (he tends to cut off in the middle of action and jump to a scene after its all finished, relating how the last scene ended through inferences) in places, but I really love the universe that Stirling has created. And I can't help but imagine him sitting around at the pub with George R.R. Martin discussing their books. (They are apparently friends.) I would recommend the series to anyone with a penchant for post-apocalypse books, though if you are a lit snob (as I am on some level) it can sometimes be hard to swallow. I can't wait to start the six-book series that takes place in the same world a generation later.
