The Peripheral by William Gibson is real adult Sci Fi.  Not because of "mature themes" or violence but because it has believable adult characters.  There is also good science, a good world and plenty of action as well as an exploration of the edges of humanity, society, family, the economy, and power.” - Kay

“National Book Award Winner Ursula K. LeGuin set this tale on a world where gender neutral humans choose their sex over cycles. Told mostly from the first person point of view of a few central characters, it challenges our notions about gender and obligation. The perfect holiday gift for that reader who loves sci-fi but wants to break away from the flashy, space opera  style epics.” - Chris

“David Green is the NPR co-host of Morning Edition on the radio. He has had a variety of postings in his career and one of them was Moscow.

In Midnight in Siberia he writes about the real  people of today's Russia who have to deal with a whole new set of circumstances in their post-Soviet world.  This is a country that is changing dramatically as it progresses into the 21st century. The book is a very entertaining and informative travelogue of a territory not visited by many Westerner.” - Archie
