It's not Sci-fi, but for me it would be Terry Pratchett. The DiscWorld is messy, flawed, anarchic, but in the end a bunch of semi-random characters make it work nevertheless, by understanding its true nature (and the law of Narrative Causality of course). A bit like Perl indeed.

    Yep, definetly Terry Pratchett. The only author making me laugh out loudly while reading in a train ... The Disc World is also funny and with a lot of analogies. Doesn't NodeReaper look like Pratchetts DEATH ?!
