I am currently trying to knock out all the Hugo and Nebula Award winning novels. I have been randomly reading these books off and on for the past 15 years, and always found them excellent and very thought provoking, so a couple of months ago I decided to read them all. So far I haven't been disappointed by any of them.
The most recent ones I've read:
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Spin by Robert Charles Wilson
Darwin's Radio by Greg Bear
Camouflage by Joe Haldeman
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K LeGuin
Startide Rising by David Brin
Seeker by Jack McDevitt
On Deck: (but not Hugo or Nebula award winners)
The Mote in God's Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle
The Gripping Hand by Niven and Pournelle (Mote's Sequel)
Playing for Pizza by John Grisham
I'd also like to highly recommend any book by Vernor Vinge but especially A Fire Upon the Deep and A Deepness in the Sky, he really comes up with some intriguing ideas.
