I've read most of Larry Bond's stuff. I think he is better than Tom Clancy.

Technothrillers can cover a lot of ground - both in the science fiction world and in the non-speculative one. Any favorite authors/books?

>5 handshakes: I would consider some stand alone novels first Red Phoenix, Vortex, Cauldron.
Red Storm Rising was a collaboration with Tom Clancy. It's the book put Bond on my radar.

William Gibson, for example Pattern recognition, Spook country, and Zero history.

Cory Doctorow is a tech expert who also writes fiction, including the Little Brother series.

For more science fiction/fantasy, there's G. Willow Wilson's Alif the Unseen and Charles Stross's series The Laundry, which starts with Atrocity Archives.

>8 LamSon: Red Storm Rising is a military/political thriller with technology and intense situations. Great standalone read I agree with LamSon. Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton. Also Coma by Robin Cook. Consider them and Happy New Year.

>11 FirstandGoal: I've read Michael Crichton's entire bibliography. I've read books by Robin Cook and I wasn't particularly impressed. I'll have to give Red Storm Rising a chance.

Neal Stephenson ? Cryptonomicon, Reamde, Interface could all qualify, among other things, as tech-thrillers

>1 handshakes: Handshakes: It sounds cheesy but I thought The President is Missing was really scary and unputdownable. It involves techie stuff.

>11 FirstandGoal: I am approaching the end of Red Phoenix Burning, the sequel to Red Phoenix. It's good. Just what I expect from Larry Bond.

If you're willing to head towards the mid-21st century, Ian McDonald has some big ideas along with plenty of action. I'm a fan of The Dervish House and River of Gods particularly.
