After a break from books when I almost gave up on reading anything good, along comes the internet , then Amazon and then one person who put me back on track.

I am a fan of Peter F Hamilton, I think his last book: Great North Road is not his best. I prefer the Commonwealth series even though his treatment of a fully capitalistic future with an economy that seems to have huge economic disparity does not fit with the idea of superabundance and productivity, still quite interesting and complicated.
I am also an author and my books take place in a series called: 'living dangerously in utopia' which tries to forecast a future of immense wealth where the poor are just wealthy.
Eric, it seems we have read many books incommon so thought I would recommend a few of my recent favorites for you to consider adding to your wish list:
"Tales of the Dying Earth Collection" by Jack Vance,
"Planet of Adventure Collection" by Jack Vance,
"Nightlamp" by Jack Vance,
"Resurrection" by Arwen Dayton,

"Avogadro (Singularity Series)" by William Hertling,
"Odyssey One (Odyssey One Series)" by Evan Currie,
"Deathworld Trilogy" by Harry Harrison,
"Make Room, Make Room" by Harry Harrison,
"Forever War Trilogy" by Joe Haldeman,
Enjoy and READ ON...
oooh...found you looking at "members like you". we have "wool" in common. and I see you have some faves there, though I've been reading so long and found shelfari fairly recently, they're not on my shelf. and my tastes for what I mostly read has changed somewhat...but I still read...almost anything! and have little to do but read and watch movies. I make 'loving' note of the appearance on your shelf of: asimov, mcdevitt (so cool), kevin anderson, greg bear...I haven't looked at your whole shelf, but I've probably read many of them at some time. at age 60, I've been reading for 50+ years...voraciously! will be checking out your shelf in total...
get in touch if you like...
