Re: Recommended Smart Action/Sci-Fi Novels

I second the Jack McDevitt recommendation-- his Priscillia Hutchins series and his Alex Benedict series are both excellent.

Also, the Pern novels by Anne McCaffrey are wonderful and have their share of action.

Re: Recommended Smart Action/Sci-Fi Novels

I forgot the latest, "James S.A. Corey," a collaboration of whomever I forget. I don't care for the books, but they are winning nominations/awards I think.

Ken MacLeod and Charles Stross have some thriller type novels, as does Greg Bear.

Military SF of course has action, but about the only one I like is Sandra MacDonald.

An old one overlooked somehow is Joanna Russ Alyx novels.
