* ''[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_Flowers Vacuum Flowers]'' (1987), novel by Michael Swanwick - Reynolds had cited a cultural group in the novel's setting, The Comprise - a human hive mind ruling Earth - as an influence on his conceptualisation of the [[Conjoiners]]. Another grouping of the novel, the Dysonworlders, inhabit artificially created comets (somewhat similar to Conjoiners building [[Mother Nest|home bases]] inside hollowed-out natural comets). <ref>Afterword, ''[[Galactic North]]'' anthology, Gollancz, 2006</ref>
