Your place is magic

Having taken a brief break from my writing I fell upon the books Greybeard and Hothouse and greedily consumed them. I'm sure I read Hothouse as a child but I was blown away by the sheer creativity of a world dominated by plants. Greybeard was a different tale and slightly dated by the age it was written in, but the concept of a society run by old folk was also a refreshing different perspective from the usual young hero protagonist. I tip my hat to you Mr Aldiss - Can anybody recommend any of his other works? Heliconia ?
