Charles Stross recommends
The Zenith Angle
The Zenith Angle (2004)
Bruce Sterling
"A Catch-22 for the slashdot generation: a wry, cynical, informed peek at the paranoid world of the post-9/11 cyberspookerati. Buy it, read it, be very afraid."
Lady of Mazes
Lady of Mazes (2005)
Karl Schroeder
"The most thought provoking and interesting work of hard SF that I've read in the past year."
Moxyland (2008)
Lauren Beukes
"Full of spiky originality, a new kind of SF munching its way out of the intestines of the wasp-paralysed caterpillar of cyberpunk."

The Quantum Thief (2010)
