Hannu Rajaniemi recommends
thumb
The Freeze-Frame Revolution (2018)
Peter Watts
"Watts takes familiar-seeming SF tropes and accelerates them towards lightspeed, until they become something chillingly other. A gripping tale where galactic timescales collide with biology and age-old human dilemmas."

Empress of Forever (2019)
Max Gladstone
"Empress of Forever is a spaceship. It blasts through a vast sparkling cosmos, powered by myth and Gladstone's boundless imagination, crewed by characters you can't help but love."
