Science fiction/fantasy book recommendations?

I just finished the rather dull novel I was reading and need a recommendation for a good, new science fiction or fantasy novel. I like authors like Philip K. Dick, Harlan Ellison, Michael Moorcock, Storm Constantine, Tanith Lee, Anne MacCaffrey, Larry Niven, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, the late Fritz Lieber,... show more I just finished the rather dull novel I was reading and need a recommendation for a good, new science fiction or fantasy novel.

I do not like long, boring series, vampire novels, military science fiction or sequels (with a few notable exceptions). Any good recommendations? Best recent novel I read was "Code Noir" by Marianne des Pierres, an Australian SF writer. It was kind of "William Gibson meets Philip K. Dick, with a little China Meiville thrown in". Highly recommended.
