Imaro by Charles R. Saunders. It's a fantasy novel set in an African-style world. So far I'm enjoying it.

Just read that (well, as "Blood of the Isles"), it's left me with an annoying urge to have my DNA tested. :)

Also Gridlinked and the Line of Polity, now Brass Man.

It costs about $100. My sister's son had his sequenced so I know the mDNA. Strange to think there's been a female in every generation for 20,000 years, which is when they estimate my clan Granny Helena lived. It's up to one of two brothers to get their Y sequence done. I'm chomping at the bit to know (just because) and both of these brothers are interested but not enough to spend the money. My oldest brother is a half and had a different father.

You really can't make a lot of cultural assumptions because the end point of the haplogroup is prehistory. Helena lived in Southern France but that doesn't make me a stylish French woman. :)

It would be more here, unfortunately. I think they know they're on to a good thing. :)

Anathem by Neal Stephenson (author of Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon) - took me a while to get into it but now am about 1/4 through and fully engrossed. Its about an earth like planet where scientists, astronomers and the like are sequestered in monostary-like temples away from the general population - they are only allowed contact with the outside world for 10 days every year, 10 years, 100 years or 1000 years, depending on the particular order that they belong to.

The Third Class At Miss Kayes by Angela Brazil.

I believe Syvlia Lindsay, the main character perhaps has mild AS. Here's my reasoning:

1. She likes to "pretend" to be her favorite characters in her books.
2. She also appears to focus heavily on Greek antiquities.

Now, obviously this book was written in 1908, so they didn't quite have a name for AS back in the day, but I assume that she has it, she appears to be distant when talking to her mother. Also, she doesn't like her routine being disturbed.

Here's the link to the story on Gutenberg
