Hello, I recently read your story "Judgment Engine" in a collection of short science fiction works and I thought it was absolutely fascinating. I was wondering if you could recommend any specific novels of yours or another author's that is similar in style, setting, or ideas etc.
Sorry if this is a common question but I found it difficult finding any relevant discussions online/articulating my search criteria

Thanks, Bill... You might also enjoy CITY AT THE END OF TIME, "Hardfought," and the EON series, all of which involve far-future scenarios. And of course you should check out HULL ZERO THREE, with its speculations on starship travel, and HALO: CRYPTUM, which examines human origins and the fantastic technology of the Forerunners.

There *isn't* anything in the style, or evern vein, of Judgement Engine. There's a reason for that.

Regardless, I suggest THE FORGE OF GOD, it's sequel, and then MOVING MARS.

Hm, I thought I had written a fair number of future visionary stories! How about "Fall of the House of Escher"?
