The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet and it's companion A Closed and Common Orbit, both by Becky Chambers, are awesome sci-fi that have an almost star-trek feel to them, in regards to the worldbuilding! While The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet[/] does mostly take place inside a spaceship, they do explore different planets, and A Close and Common Orbit takes place in one of the planets mentioned in the previous book.

There's also a really fun anthology of short stories that I enjoyed called Old Venus compiled by George R.R. Martin, which features retro/classic style science fiction short stories all set on Venus!

The Solaris series is wonderful. The first book is Solaris Seethes and I could not put it down. It held my attention throughout. The author is Janet McNulty. Enjoy...

I would look at Orson Scott Card. It’s Practically his entire genre and he comes up with some crazy unique concepts including, but not limited to, enders game. They are fun to read.

Solaris Seethes is the book that awaits you. Well, let me give you a gist. There is a ship that travels by land, water, and space. Find out the real story of this fascinating novel.
Yes, I have a dream! A dream that I will never give up.
