Poul Anderson's Legacies
Can anyone top the Time Patrol? Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife is at least an excellent circular causality novel.
I know that there is much post-Anderson cosmic sf, e.g., by Gregory Benford, but have not really kept up with it.
We have seen that SM Stirling has developed this sub-genre further than Anderson.
...in which extrasolar colonies are isolated for centuries, then reincorporated into an interstellar civilization. We are currently finding that Jerry Pournelle's CoDominium future history fits well into this sub-sub-genre.
