Looking for Good and Recent Sci-Fi Books

windup girl by paolo bacigalupi (biotech struggles in 2300 a.d. thailand) is really good. great language and characters and very good sense of setting.

MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood is her third book in the Oryx and Crake series. There's more biotech disaster, posthumans, and great characters and plot.

The Grand Tour series by Ben Bova.. Farside and New Earth are his most recent books.. the characters and their interactions aren't as good as his older books but the setting is good and they're nice, quick reads. They're hard science fiction popcorn. The descriptions of nanotech are pretty in line with OA's ideas.

Ancillary Justice by Anne Leckie is really good. Posthuman setting, hive mind spacecraft, military drama.. Great characters and alien perspective.
