I liked the books. This season is based on the first of them. As I recall the plot, the series has diverged a little from the book, but not too far. I'm only two or three episodes in, myself.

My mental pictures of the book's scenes were not as Blade Runner-ish in the commercial and upscale areas, but the show's interpretations are valid. (And probably a big plus for most of the audience.)

I haven't read his SF novels, but his Fantasy novel that I read was pretty good.

Artemis is so poorly written, I wonder if I will ever finish it. Just so, so bad.

I think someone here recommended A Darkling Sea? Finally ran across a paper copy at the library. Really good world building, original exploration of its themes, and better writing than some of my favorite sci-fi, especially for a debut. (Thinking of Old Man's War, which I also read recently... that one warms up but the first chunk of it is stilted.) Go read it.
