Science fiction recommendations?

Wait…what about us grown-ups? What is the best science fiction novel you’ve read recently?


I’m seeing lots of recommendations for Orson Scott Card, but I have to admit that I’ve long lost any affection I might have had for his work. Did you know he has a new book? It looks like full-blown reactionary tripe.

    Janet Kagan only wrote three novels (two original, plus one Star Trek adaptation) because she was chronically ill.

    I reiterate the intense recommendation of Mirabile and Hellspark; Uhura’s Song is pretty good too, but it is a Trek novel, so make of that what you will.
