On the other hand looking now at their catalog I find authors like Vernor Vinge so maybe things have changed since I last looked at this.
Ah, but it is important to keep in mind that your viewpoint is your viewpoint. What you find interesting, others might find pretentious or boring. As for reflecting the state of SF today, considering they are one of the more successful publishers at the moment, I would suggest they do represent at least part of the state of SF today.
