Stuff you watched/read/liked which is kind of similar to this and/or that aspect of something here.

I sometimes read stories that remind me of other stories, so there is a chance you might enjoy them too.

- the outer limits episode "think like a dinosaur" (there is also the original short story, and an audioplay - each are worth it) - deals with ethical issues of copying people and strong enforcement of a one-person-only rule
(outer limits and twilight zone are worth watching in every incarnation)

- the 99-01 canadian TV series "7 days" - costly time travel, regular rebooting and just fun to watch link

- the movie "in time". Its not particularly good, but reminded me of Talyn in Elcenia and one of the things he does in his own book

- German novel "Stadt der Träumenden Bücher" engl: "The City of Dreaming Books". It is the reason I picture Rhysel to look like this instead of this. I only found the character sheets after reading a lot of the story with this mental image. The other books by Walter Moers are also worth it. Esp. the 13,5 lives of Captain Bluebear.

Webcomic Freefall: http://freefall.purrsia.com/ffdex.htm has one nice and very intelligent Wolf, and other people. Project Rho calls it the most scientifically accurate webcomic and since I just posted about looking for nice stories that one comes to mind.)

I am not sure what *is* similar, but how about:

I haven't read Girl Genius in years (lost the point where I was reading and now has been too long) http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php

All Culture novels by Iain M. Banks-- but especially "Surface Detail".

Scientifically accurate (or close enough), funny, webcomicy, and enough story to last you a *very* long time (it is *still* updating every single day): http://schlockmercenary.com
People who like to explore and occasionally deconstruct Harry Potter and/or D&D 3E in a very genre-savvy way should definitely read https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8096183/1/ ... Natural-20
