SF becomes interesting when that science is just a means to an end, and that end is to tell about real human beings and their interacting with each other in their society.

And thanks for the suggestions, too. :-) I would suggest looking at the Budayeen series by George Alec Effinger.

There’s a heaping helping of Impostor Syndrome every time I put my fingers to keys knowing I’m participating in the same genre that so many of my favourite writers established around the year I was born. Still, there's enough intimate details present to draw you into Ny Axxter's strange world. Her science fiction books include The Question Mark (1926), an ambiguous utopia that likely influenced Aldous Huxley; Hermes Speaks (1933); and Retreat From Armageddon (1936).
