Nalo Hopkinson recommends
thumb
The Annunciate (1999)
Severna Park
"Intricately thought out and compelling; love, duty, subjugation and first contact play out in worlds where humans interface with technology which is organic, personal, and shaped by individual creative vision. A beutifully concieved story."
thumb
The Chronoliths (2001)
Robert Charles Wilson
"If you read science fiction for its scientific extrapolations, then there's much here to satisfy. If, like me, you read the genre for its examinations of human lives in a crucible, then The Chronoliths also delivers the goods."

Trash Sex Magic (2004)
Jennifer Stevenson
"Jennifer Stevenson is my goddess."
