(I, myself, lean towards social libertarianism, but with some limitations; but for economics, I believe wholeheartedly in favor of regulating corporations and redistribution of wealth.)

In addition to Hogan's work, the works of Allen Steele (at least the Coyote series) and Robert L. Forward also sound interesting.
What? I find this very strange to be concerned about what politics are expressed in fiction...it's fiction for gawdssake.
