Ten sci-fi novels that pack more action than most summer movies

At io9 Charlie Jane Anders compiled a list of ten science fiction novels that pack more action than most summer movies.  One title on the list:
Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan

As we wrote in our review a few years ago, this debut novel is popping with clever ideas, as if Morgan wasn't sure he'd ever get to write another one. And we added back then: "It could make a terrific movie, if they could travel back in time to 1990 and get Bullet In The Head-era John Woo to direct."
Read about the other entries on the list.

Altered Carbon is among Lauren Davis's ten most depressing futuristic retirement scenarios in science fiction and Charlie Jane Anders's top 10 science fiction detective novels of all time.
