Seeking recommendations for current SF novels.
Advertisements [?]
I read lots of SF in my younger years, so am familiar with some of the classics and with SF tropes. I want to take up reading in this genre again. I enjoy hard SF and social themes. Also partial to post-apocalyptic novels if well-crafted, but certainly am willing to consider works involving other themes. Thanks in advance for your recs.
