Humph.  I was very fond of The Crucible of Time.  I also liked Shockwave
Rider very much, and enjoyed The Sheep Look Up, Stand on Zanzibar, and The
Jagged Orbit.

I thought TCoT WAS sociological SF, it just had a more alien sociology
to play around with.  Actually, although the aliens were very alien
(I thought they were well done) the basic sociology was, to my mind,
essentially human.

(By the way, did anybody else notice that for a LONG time before TCoT
came out, there were no Brunner paperbacks in most bookstores (I exclude
SF specialty stores)?  It was terrible, there was nothing to separate
Brooks from Brust :-)

An older Brunner book that I enjoyed very much is The Traveller in Black.
It's essentially fantasy rather than SF, it might not appeal for the same
reasons as his other books;  but it's very good.
