Beverley | 2 comments After reading The Martian I'd love to check out something similar. I'd prefer realistic sci-fi to something too OTT. Cheers! :)

Lit Bug | 13 comments I suggest works of Isaac Asimov (Nemesis, Foundation series) and Robert Heinlein. If you're interested in the intersections of religion and futuristic technologies/space - go for Philip K. Dick's Valis trilogy.

Christy (christymtidwell) | 149 comments I'm not quite sure if these are what you want, but here are some possibilities in no particular order:

Embassytown by China Miéville
Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey
Hull Zero Three by Greg Bear
Probability Moon by Nancy Kress
Daughters of Earth and Other Stories by Judith Merril
The Color of Distance by Amy Thomson
The Dazzle of Day by Molly Gloss
Survival by Julie E. Czerneda
Sundiver by David Brin
Ringworld by Larry Niven
Gateway by Frederik Pohl

I hope one or more of these looks interesting!
