Cyteen, and the rest of the books for the would-be mage

Finished it today, then turned around and am re-reading it. Am probably going to pass on getting a new copy, even with Az's share-the-love, as I've got this copy already, it's held together with duct tape, and can always be reinforced again.

One of the things I want to do at some point is put together a list of books that I think that many young mages who think at least in part like me would benefit from. The entirety of the Young Wizards series, of course, Cyteen, Snow Crash, Spock's World, and some good headbreaky fantasy like the Tale of the Five, and some Patricia McKillip, and The Blue Sword and The Hero and the Crown. Perhaps also some Illuminatus! Trilogy, and some Vonnegut. Some Bujold, of course, and also the Diana Tregarde books, because those are pretty good for those of us who do have the white-knight complex. Add in the Feynman autobiographies too, for balance. ...on third thought, add them early, right along in with Nita and Kit.
