Well a bit o-t, but on the other hand we can argue that these novels are 
inspirational for ray-tracing :-) so some discussion is needed.
Which reminds me of the Mythago Wood books by Robert Holdstock 
http://www.robertholdstock.com/, which are very famous (I've heard) in 
France. There is too a lot of inspiration for ray-tracing. I have not yet 
have had the time to work something out, but it is in the back of my mind.
