Literary Science Fiction
The science fiction genre is a broad church and includes even those who resist the classification. I particulary appreciate literary novelists Margaret Atwood and David Mitchell. My favourites: The Handmaid's Tale and Oryx and Crake for Atwood; Ghostwritten and Cloud Atlas for Mitchell. Any other suggestions? Anyone else rate these authors?

Oh, another one. Kazuo Ishiguro's 'Never Let me Go'.

... it's also worth checking out the Arthur C Clarke Award shortlist as they often pick out such novels.
