Ken MacLeod recommends
thumb
The Offset (2021)
Calder Szewczak
"The Offset’s searing critique of anti-natalism could do for eco-fascism what Ninety Eighty-Four did for socialism and Brave New World did for eugenics."
thumb
The Actuality (2021)
Paul Braddon
"Engaging, fast-moving and surprising... The novel gives familiar science fiction themes a fresh and compassionate look, and makes of them something new."
thumb
Starlings (2018)
Jo Walton
"Jo Walton's short writings have for decades been among the things that make the Internet worthwhile. She makes science fiction illuminate life. This collection lives up to its title: iridescent, dark, gregarious, talkative and ever ready to fly up."
