We often hear about the canonical science fiction, but what about modern books and series? In the last thirty years we've seen a renaissance of subject matter and new voices within the genre.
We still need more nominations (and the nominations that exist need seconds if they're to make it to the poll).
Rules are on the original page if you're wondering if your nomination counts as "modern" or "science fiction."
Please please please put any new nominations on the comments of the original page. It'll make my life so much easier when I make the poll to have all the nominations in one place.
