Cory Doctorow recommends
thumb
The Zenith Angle (2004)
Bruce Sterling
"Vibrates with fantastic in-jokes and insights . . . rockets along like a hijacked airliner heading straight at you, like a flash-worm compromising every unpatched Windows box on the net at once. Lots of books are called "thrillers" but very few are this thrilling."
thumb
Sun of Suns (2006)
(Virga, book 1)
Karl Schroeder
"Mix in one part thrilling action, one part screaming-cool steampunk tech, and one part world-building and you've got Sun of Suns... Schroeder is a master."
thumb
Rolling Thunder (2008)
(Thunder and Lightning, book 3)
John Varley
"Varley is a kind of latter-day, humanist, Heinlein, someone who writes science fiction with imagination and verve."
thumb
The Ant King (2008)
Benjamin Rosenbaum
"Urbane without being arch, sweet without being maudlin, mysterious without being cryptic."
thumb
Struts & Frets (2009)
Jon Skovron
"Will feel instantly authentic to anyone who's ever felt the pride and shame of being an outsider."
thumb
Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl (2010)
Daniel Pinkwater
"Daniel Pinkwater may be my single most favorite writer in the entire world!"
thumb
The Unidentified (2010)
Rae Mariz
"SUBVERSIVE, cleverly written, CHALLENGING, and SURPRISING."
thumb
Among Others (2011)
Jo Walton
"A hymnal for the clever and odd - an inspiration and a lifeline to anyone who has ever felt in the world, but not of it."
thumb
Deathless (2011)
Catherynne M Valente
"Romantic and blood-streaked, and infused with magic so real you can feel it on your fingertips - Deathless is beautiful."
thumb
Planesrunner (2011)
(Everness , book 1)
Ian McDonald
"Action-packed, wildly imaginative and full of heart."
thumb
Agatha H. and the Clockwork Princess (2012)
(Girl Genius, book 2)
Kaja Foglio and Phil Foglio
"Tremendous fun"
thumb
Hungry Bug (2014)
Carlton Mellick III
"A virtuoso of the surreal, science fictional tale."
thumb
Expiration Day (2014)
William Campbell Powell
"A remarkable and heart-filled look at what it means to be human."
thumb
Maplecroft (2014)
(Borden Dispatches, book 1)
Cherie Priest
"Priest can write scenes that are jump-out-of-your-skin scary."
thumb
Steeplejack (2016)
(Steeplejack, book 1)
A J Hartley
"A richly realized world, an intensely likable character, and a mystery to die for."
thumb
My Sister Rosa (2016)
Justine Larbalestier
"Beats The Silence of the Lambs for suspense—it's the kind of book that had me literally gasping aloud as it rattled to its incredible conclusion."
thumb
The Liberation (2016)
(Alchemy War, book 3)
Ian Tregillis
"Tremendous."
thumb
The Free (2017)
Lauren McLaughlin
"A tight, claustrophobic novel that veers between the terror and camaraderie of incarceration; I don't know when I've read a more empathic novel, and it's been a long time since I read one that was more sorrowful and joyful at the same time."
thumb
Tropic of Kansas (2017)
Christopher Brown
"Timely, dark, and ultimately hopeful: it might not ‘make America great again,’ but then again, it just might."
thumb
Autonomous (2017)
Annalee Newitz
"Everything you'd hope for from the co-founder of io9 ... Combines the gonzo, corporatized future of Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash with the weird sex of Charlie Stross's Saturn's Children; throws in an action hero that's a biohacker version of Bruce Sterling's Leggy Starlitz, and then saturates it with decades of deep involvement with free software hackers, pop culture, and the leading edge of human sexuality."
thumb
The Will to Battle (2017)
(Terra Ignota, book 3)
Ada Palmer
"More intricate, more plausible, more significant than any debut i can recall...If you read a debut novel this year, make it Too Like the Lightning."
