Here are some recommendations I've received from various sources. I haven't read all these books, so I'm not sure if all of them are truly what I'd consider "fractopian," but this is a good place to start...

Moxyland - Lauren Beukes
Misspent Youth - Peter F Hamilton

River of Gods - Ian McDonald
Watch - Robert J Sawyer
Wonder - Robert J Sawyer
Kill Process - William Hertling
Halting State - Charles Stross
Reamde - Neal Stephenson

Most any of Walter Miller's novels
Prey - Michael Crichton
Infomocracy (Centenal Cycle #1) - Malka Ann Older
Super Sad True Love Story - Gary Shteyngart
