Pharos the Egyptian

by Guy Newell Boothby

A grand mummy novel that is reminiscent of the Universal Studios mummy movies from the 1930s and the Fu Manchu novels by Sax Rohmer, though it pre-dates them all. This is the best mummy novel I've read (admittedly there aren't many). Guy Boothby was one of the most popular authors of his day, and this fast moving story shows why. The book contains many intriguing elements that have since become standards of mummy stories and films. The revenge plot is breathtaking in its scope and fiendishness.

Overclocked

by Cory Doctorow

When sysadmins ruled the Earth is the best story I have ever read. The other stories I liked, but by far sysadmins is the best.
