Connie Willis recommends
The Future (2023)
Naomi Alderman
"Talk of AI - and fears of what it can do - are everywhere in the news these days, but nobody seems to know exactly WHY we should be afraid and where this is all leading. Except Naomi Alderman! Her bold new novel, The Future, looks at AI in all of its seductive, terrifying forms while telling a story that takes place RIGHT NOW and spans continents and world-ending catastrophes while managing to be intensely personal at the same time. A story of advertising tricks and devious (or downright evil) algorithms, cults and corporations, billionaires determined to save their own skins at all costs and eco-idealists equally determined to save the world, set in, of all places, Sodom and Gomorrah! A compulsory - and compulsive - read!"
Poor Man's Sky (2023)
(Rich Man's Sky, book 2)
Wil McCarthy
"A jam-packed adventure fizzing with mind-blowing concepts, and a great read."
The First Law of Thermodynamics (2021)
James Patrick Kelly
"He changes our attitudes and our perceptions and even our understanding of what the short story can be, and he does it in stories which are disturbing, clever, affecting, funny and unique in every sense of the word."
