What are the best science fiction novels since 2000?

Posted August 13, 2013 by

When we think of the classics of 20th century science fiction we think of names like Asimov, Clarke and Wells. But who are going to be the authors that occupy that space in the 21st century? I’ve compiled a small list below of some books that have been published since 2000 that are already sci-fi classics. It is by no means comprehensive, and I’ve only included books I’ve actually read so there are definitely gaps. I’d love to see your lists, leave them in the comments section!
