10 current SF authors

Filed under: Uncategorized — Rhiannon Lassiter @ 1:00 pm

It’s been a while since I listed ten science fiction titles. Those are still valid but I thought I’d add to them by listing ten current SF authors (people writing good work right now) who I’d recommend.

  • Greg Egan, author of Permutation City, Schild’s Ladder and Quarantine and other titles
  • Mary Gentle, author of Golden Witchbreed, the White Crow quartet and other titles
  • Peter F. Hamilton, author of the Night’s Dawn Trilogy and other titles
  • Gwyneth Jones, author of the Aleutian trilogy and other novels
  • Ursula Le Guin, author of The Dispossessed, The Left Hand of Darkness, Four Ways to Forgiveness and other titles
  • Rachel Pollack, author of Temporary Agency and Unquenchable Fire and other titles
  • Adam Roberts, author of Stone, Salt and Gradisil and other titles
  • Michael Marshall Smith, author of Only Forward, Spares and other titles, now writing horror novels under the name Michael Marshall.
  • Neal Stephenson, author of The Diamond Age, The Big U and other titles
  • John Scalzi, author of Old Man’s War and other titles

Please note that these are adult SF titles and as such may contain adult content including scenes of violence and/or sexual activity. Rachel Pollack is also recommended as an author of LGBT fiction – another list I should write at some point.

  1. Michael Marshall Smith has also recently published a YA book under the name M M Smith.

    And I think Rachel Pollack prefers to spell her name with an ‘a’?
