Ernest Cline recommends
The Clockwork Dynasty (2017)
Daniel H Wilson
"The Clockwork Dynasty is my new favorite alternate history novel! It's like some fantastic hybrid of Highlander and The Terminator--or maybe a cross between I, Robot and The Difference Engine, with a dash of Blade Runner for good measure. It reads like classic steampunk on steroids. In other words, it's totally bad ass and you're going to love it."
Supermarket (2019)
Bobby Hall
"Bobby Hall has crafted a mind-bending first novel, with prose that is just as fierce and moving as his lyrics. Supermarket is like Naked Lunch meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest--if they met at Fight Club."
