Help! I'm almost done with Cryptonomicon and I'm not ready to read the whole Baroque Cycle!

Hello, I'm looking for longish, fun books that are packed with interesting ideas. The two books that I've read recently that I've enjoyed the most have been Nick Harkaway's The Gone-Away World
and Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon
. I'm looking for suggestions for more books like that - things that will take me a while to read, have a lively momentum throughout, and are stuffed with a lot of cool concepts. If I read someone else asking this question, I'd probably suggest Infinite Jest, so I'll say upfront that I've already read it. Thanks!
