One more author suggestion: If stories about manned space travel in the next century or so excite you, read anything Ben Bova has written in the last 10 years or so. Titles like: Mars, Return to Mars, Moonrise, Moonwar (distinctly inspired by The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, but it's an important step in his future history), Venus, Jupiter, The Rock Rats, etc.

Right off the top of my head, I can't remember every title or what the chronological order should be, but I liked them all. The order doesn't matter too much, except in the case of the Mars and Moon books.

Of course, you could also read anything Bova wrote earlier in his career. He's always been good.
