David Zindell


I can describe his Requiem for Homo Sapiens as…Philosophic Fiction? I read it about 10 years ago, and was instantly hooked - that trilogy is why I went into Philosophy.

It is …fantastic, although I wouldn’t call it fantasy in the sense of swords and sorcery, and it is futuristic, but I wouldn’t call it Sci-fi in the vein of Clarke Asimov, etc.

Anyone else read anything by Zindell? I started reading his actual fantasy series, but it falls massively short of Neverness and the Requiem trilogy.

Zindell’s Danlo the Wild trilogy is one of my favorite works of scifi. But you have to also like philosophy and eastern mysticism a bit to get into it.
