Frederik Pohl recommends
thumb
Transcendental (2013)
(Transcendental Machine, book 1)
James Gunn
"His best yet."
thumb
For Us, the Living (2003)
Robert Heinlein
"The wonderful thing about For Us, The Living is that in it we can see the seeds of many of Robert Heinlein's great later works, starting with the first notion for 'The Roads Must Roll' and going on to cover much of his lifelong thinking on politics and society. I'm very glad I read it."
thumb
Driftglass (1971)
Samuel R Delany
"Delany may be the only authentic genius among us."
