Stephen Baxter recommends
Cities in Flight
Cities in Flight (1970)
(Cities in Flight)
James Blish
"A compelling future history, a tale of thistledown cities blown by the winds of time. This is one of SF's most original concepts, an exciting tale deepened and made utterly plausible by Blish's craft and his mature understanding of people and history. If you haven't read this yet, I envy you. Blish's cities will fly through your dreams."
