James P. Hogan. Real Science Fiction, with emphasis on the science.

Naturally, he has to make some things up in order for his stories to work, but the seams don't usually show at all...the stories are very credible within their own framework.

He and I correspond fairly regularly. Right now, we are discussing the origins of Venus, said topic stimulated by his book Cradle of Saturn (he is a Velikovskian).

The Genesis Machine was, IMO, one of the best hard-science fiction books I have read in many years. But The Two Faces of Tomorrow is right there with it.

RealTime Interrupt is timely, hugely probable (it'll happen, within 20 years) and with some very interesting twists.
