For my cognition enhancement project, I have decided to not just put
together a bibliography of research papers and ethics papers, but also
fiction that deals with cognition enhancement - improved memory,
attention, intelligence, creativity etc - in an intelligent way. So I
would be interested in what novels and short stories (and poems for that
matter) deals with the subject of technologically enhanced cognition. In
particular discussion of the social effects in a nontrival way is

Hopefully I can turn it into something like the nanotech in sf
bibliography at http://www.geocities.com/asnapier/nano/n-sf/

Any suggestions?
