As JA requested…..
A little while ago I complained that the Greg Bear novel Darwin’s Radio wasn’t all that it could’ve been which prompted JA (over at Jewish Atheist – check out the link) to ask me for examples of books containing interesting ideas with a narrative power to match. So, here are ten books I can recommend.
The Traveller by John Twelve Hawkes
The Martian Race and The Sunborn by Gregory Benford
Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson
The Chronoliths and Darwinia by Robert Charles Wilson
Look to Windward by Iain M Banks
The Bridge by Janine Ellen Young
A Deepness in the Sky by Vernor Vinge
Earthquake Weather by Tim Powers.
I hope you enjoy them.
