I'm looking for good historical novels about real or fictional scientists. I've read Stephenson's "The Baroque Cycle" (awesome), Iain Pearson's "An Instance of the Fingerpost" (similarly awesome), and am in the middle of Benjamin Markovits' "The Syme Papers" (not quite as awesome but not bad). I've probably read others too, but those are the ones that come to mind immediately and which are more or less the kind of books I'm looking for. Thanks in advance!
