I just finished GlassHouse.

From the perspective of the civilization wherein resides the main character, we are living in The Dark Ages(tm.)  I won't say more to avoid spoiling the surprises.  Although I must say if gender shifting or role reversal weirds you out don't bail on the novel.  It's handled in such a way that it doesn't feel creepy.

I have a feeling the next few Sci Fi novels I read will be by this author.  :)

Although I'm a bit concerned about the future of the Ketai library, am reading Rapid Android Development:

blurb from the aforementioned linked page:

I'm nearly finished with Accelerando

The Singularity. It is the era of the posthuman. Artificial intelligences have surpassed the limits of human intellect. Biotechnological beings have rendered people all but extinct. Molecular nanotechnology runs rampant, replicating and reprogramming at will. Contact with extraterrestrial life grows more imminent with each new day.
--- End quote ---

The blurb makes it sound like Terminator: Man vs Machine.  But it's an amusing tale of the transition of humans from merely "meat brained" to augmented integration with technology.  Fun reading.  :)
