Wizard and Demon by John Varley

These are the second and third books in the Gaia trilogy. In Wizard, many years have passed since Titan and Cirocco has become a drunk while Gaby is doing maintenance all over the wheel. We meet some new people and start off trying to interview each regional brain to find out if they're willing to overthrow Gaia. Bad things happen.

Demon starts twenty years after the end of Wizard with mostly the same cast. It's time to get down to business and bring down Gaia who has incarnated at a fifty-foot tall Marilyn Monroe. I liked this book best. There was more characterization, more plot, more urgency.
