  1. What is a “reprape” ?
    It is on your instructables -about you-page….

  2. RepRap. A 3d printer that can print parts for itself. http://reprap.org/wiki/Main_Page

  3. Some good books there (I ought to re-read May’s “Exiles” series).

    To add to your list:

    > Anything by China Meiville (sp?), Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle, Ian Stewart & Jack Cohen, Terry Pratchett.

    > “Dragon’s Egg” by Robert L Forward.

    > “Dry Store No1″ by Richard Fortey.

    > Anything by Dawkins (except “God Delusion”, unless you are after specific anti-creationism stuff).

    > William Gurstelle’s books may provide some inspiration for projects (or would make good birthday/Christmas presents for Steve’s boys?)

  4. I’ve read the first Exiles books, they’re excellent.

    I didn’t like the last two Pratchett books I read (Death, Nightwatch), but I was in the mood for something serious at the time. I should give him another chance :D

    Others are noted, thanks Mark!

  5. I’ve just got addicted to KJ Parker – went through two books of The Engineer Trilogy this weekend.

    Zindell’s Neverness and The Broken God trilogy are great, but more SF than the Fantasy you’ve mostly got above.

    Oh, and obviously Steven Erikson, if you’d like to see someone do long-form properly…
