Writer, reader, reviewer, novelist. The usual suspects.

Science Fiction and Fantasy and Horror are my passions, but what really gets me going is the Weird stuff. The creative stuff. The enormous OMG what did I just read stuff.

Sometimes insightful, sometimes funny, I am, above all, stubborn. This is me on fiction.

Bradley Chasm wrote: "Hi Brad! Hello! Do have any idea about what sci fi books that used economics as its main theme?

Thank you."


A ton of Charles Stross books focus on economics, but it's not limited to just him. A lot of SF does. Heinlein is great for it, but short of doing a long survey of works, I could recommend some like Neptune's Brood, The Foundation Trilogy, Rule 34, Cryptonomicon, or even Dune if you do a careful reading.

message 3: by mark

mark monday Do likes count as communication?

eh, not really. although I do appreciate them of course!

the main reason I put that in my friend request question is because I don't like having too many goodreads friends so from time to time I go on a friend deleting spree. I always keep the friends I recognize (unless they are inactive or have somehow annoyed me). so to stay my friend, I have to recognize you, and one of the ways to do that is to become a real person to me by occasionally communicating with me. however the other way to do that is by regularly writing reviews that I enjoy. you definitely have the latter covered!


Robert Thanks for accepting my friend request, Brad.
