Although I wasn't impressed with the opening chapters and even considered cutting my losses after 25 pages or so, I'm very glad I decided to soldier on as the quality of the storytelling increased very quickly thereafter. If you like "hard" sci-fi in the vein of Arthur C. Clarke or even Ben Bova you should really get a lot out of this novel, which on the whole probably deserves to have won its recognition back in the 90s. Mr. Bear does a good job imagining a not-so-distant future of high technology and even higher human aspirations, then easing the reader into the narrative as glibly and seamlessly as Gibson did with Neuromancer. Also recommended by the same author: Blood Music

Quite a strong piece from Greg Bear, Moving Mars is a very different style novel than the others on this list. Essentially a cross of hard SF and fantasy, Moving Mars tells the story of a fascinating female protagonist, Casseia Majumdar and her progression through Martian society.
