Top sf authers for me would have to be, alister reynolds, ian M banks and ken mcleod ( apsolute best ever in my op)
ive tryed clarkes "last theorm " and was sorely disapointed at one who is hyped as a grandmaster of sf.
mcleods "learning the world" is my fave first contact book and my all time fave is reynolds "pushong ice". also just read enders game and found it
excelent, a twisty plot at the end and fairly well written to boot.
however I have also indulged in some fanboy purchaces of star trek novels and found some hidden jems. articles of the fediration is a very different
trek and offers a clever take on the universes politics. startrek: titan is awsome and borders on becoming proper hard sf, mainly because of its
islolation from the main trek storylines, "above a torrent sea" is paticularly good. trek novels atualy pay more atention to continuity and science
than the tv seris ever did.
ps: tryed to read reality disfunctional twice but never got past the opening, such a dull writing style! jeff sommers "electric church" is good near
