The first ten, in the order they came to me:

  • “Watership Down” by Richard Adams
  • “The Victorian Internet” by Tom Standage
  • “Startide Rising” by David Brin
  • “Spin” by Robert Charles Wilson
  • “The Chronoliths” by Robert Charles Wilson
  • “Mother Earth Mother Board” by Neal Stephenson (technically a magazine article, but at ~47,000 words, it’s verging on novel length)
  • “Excession” by Iain M. Banks
  • “Copper” by Kazu Kibuishi
  • “The Atrocity Archives” by Charles Stross
  • “The Westing Game” by Ellen Raskin
