S B Divya recommends
Automatic Reload (2020)
Ferrett Steinmetz
"Automatic Reload is an adrenaline-fueled cyborg rampage wrapped around a creamy sweet center. With a heart-stopping pace, tender interludes, and rich technical details, Ferrett Steinmetz has crafted a story that cranks itself to eleven. You'd better have your seat belt on, because this book barrels through tight corners and hairpin turns, all the way to its unexpected finish line."
Sun-Daughters, Sea-Daughters (2021)
Aimee Ogden
"A feast of worldbuilding and creativity fills this novella, which explores the ways in which tribalism and bias can affect human culture, even though humanity has mastered its own genetic destiny. Aimee Ogden crafts powerful imagery and themes that linger in your thoughts long after you read the last word."
Station Eternity (2022)
(Midsolar Murders, book 1)
Mur Lafferty
"Mur Lafferty is turning into science fiction's Agatha Christie, with her mastery of ensemble casts and deft characterizations. Station Eternity builds a whole new universe of alien civilizations and wraps it all in an engaging mystery. This fun, fast-paced novel is sure to please fans of both Six Wakes and Solo."
The Ten-Percent Thief (2023)
Lavanya Lakshminarayan
"In the best tradition of dystopian fiction, Analog/Virtual explores issues about class, society, power structures and values. Lavanya Lakshminarayan has skilfully crafted a series of interwoven stories about a frighteningly plausible near future scenario, rooted in the extrapolation of today's worship of technology and productivity. Spanning multiple points of view, writing styles and character voices, this masterful work of science fiction weaves its individual stories into a complex and engaging whole."
