"15 Best Mysterious Alien Megastructure Books" by Dan Livingston
I've read six of them. I am disappointed in myself.
_Gateway_ seemed necessary, although how mysterious is it?
Asteroid full of spaceships, it's obviously a garage.
No, the plumbing, that is a puzzle...
I've read Gateway, Rama, Ringworld, M - Titan. (Close!)
I did post a comment about Cirocco Jones: they misspelled
his name. :-)
I know of _Midnight at the Well of Souls_ but never read it, although i had it on my to read list at one point.
I know of the New Sun and long Sun books, but again have not read them, although thy do seem interesting, and I like other works by Wolfe.
I have read _Gateway_ several times, and most of its sequels. The Gateway asteroid was not mysterious itself, it was who had built it and why that was a mystery.
I started the fist book in the Coyote series after enjoying some related works such as _Clarke County, Space_ but found it not to my taste and never finished it.
I first Read _Across a Billion Years_ when i was about 15, and have reread it many times. The shared but not quite matching background with _Tower of Glass_ is interesting. i didn't really get the feleig of the dyson shhere here as a plac, it seemed to be jsut a stage setting: The asteroid where the robot was waiting was much more vivid for me.
I enjoyed Eon, but never reread it or got into the sequel.
I have read and reread Ringworld and most of its sequels. The Ringworld itself is a huge structure that I feel the author really made to live.
I recall liking _Pushing Ice_ quite a biyt, and should probably reread it.
I Enjoyed _Rendezvous with Rama_ very much indeed, and have reread it many tiems. I read the first two sequels and halted.
None of the others have I read or seriously considered reading.
