I’ve been asked if I can come up with a list of the best recent science fiction books for publication in November, as a sort of Christmas shopping list. I am very conscious that I have lagged behind in my reading of fiction, even in this beloved genre, and am worried that something may have simply flown under my radar. And so I thought to myself, why not ask on the blog?
So that’s what I am doing. What would you say are the best science fiction books written in the past couple of years? I’m particularly interested to know if any of them explore themes related to religion.
Thank you in advance for your input. This will be an enormous help since, if blog readers draw to my attention something that I have not yet read but clearly should, I can bump it up to the top of my reading list, and read it myself in time to know whether to include it or not in the list I’ll be putting together.
So what are your recommendations?
