I just started trying to re-read Stranger in a Strange Land. I think it's coming off the lists of books I think you should read. Horribly dated and not all that good, now that I'm a little older. Boo.

You are a bigger geek than I am, so I will get booted from the club first. Don't worry, I will help you when you get to the outside...
