Cory Doctorow recommends
The Zenith Angle
The Zenith Angle (2004)
Bruce Sterling
"Vibrates with fantastic in-jokes and insights . . . rockets along like a hijacked airliner heading straight at you, like a flash-worm compromising every unpatched Windows box on the net at once. Lots of books are called "thrillers" but very few are this thrilling."
Sun of Suns
Sun of Suns (2006)
(Virga, book 1)
Karl Schroeder
"Mix in one part thrilling action, one part screaming-cool steampunk tech, and one part world-building and you've got Sun of Suns... Schroeder is a master."
Rolling Thunder
Rolling Thunder (2008)
(Thunder and Lightning, book 3)
John Varley
"Varley is a kind of latter-day, humanist, Heinlein, someone who writes science fiction with imagination and verve."
The Ant King
The Ant King (2008)
Benjamin Rosenbaum
"Urbane without being arch, sweet without being maudlin, mysterious without being cryptic."
Struts & Frets
Struts & Frets (2009)
Jon Skovron
"Will feel instantly authentic to anyone who's ever felt the pride and shame of being an outsider."

Daniel Pinkwater
"Daniel Pinkwater may be my single most favorite writer in the entire world!"

The Unidentified (2010)
Rae Mariz

Among Others (2011)
Jo Walton
"A hymnal for the clever and odd - an inspiration and a lifeline to anyone who has ever felt in the world, but not of it."

Deathless (2011)
Catherynne M Valente
"Romantic and blood-streaked, and infused with magic so real you can feel it on your fingertips - Deathless is beautiful."

Planesrunner (2011)
(Everness , book 1)

A J Hartley
