Charles Stross recommends
thumb
The Zenith Angle (2004)
Bruce Sterling
"A Catch-22 for the slashdot generation: a wry, cynical, informed peek at the paranoid world of the post-9/11 cyberspookerati. Buy it, read it, be very afraid."
thumb
Lady of Mazes (2005)
Karl Schroeder
"The most thought provoking and interesting work of hard SF that I've read in the past year."
thumb
Moxyland (2008)
Lauren Beukes
"Full of spiky originality, a new kind of SF munching its way out of the intestines of the wasp-paralysed caterpillar of cyberpunk."
thumb
The Green Leopard Plague and Other Stories (2010)
Walter Jon Williams
"Walter Jon Williams really knows how to play power chords in the key of 'sense of wonder'!"
thumb
The Quantum Thief (2010)
(Quantum Thief, book 1)
Hannu Rajaniemi
"The best first SF novel I've read in years. Hard to admit, but I think he's better at this stuff than I am."
thumb
Pyramid of Blood (2015)
(Swords Versus Tanks, book 3)
M Harold Page
"Holy ****."
thumb
An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors (2017)
